“I like the big machines that help grow our corn. I like horses, too.”

Addilyn Glass, 10, Princeton Christian Academy

“I like all the things that can grow and become different things that help people.”

Regan Cook, 10, Princeton Christian Academy

“I like animals because they’re fluffy and fun; and I like pigs because we get pork from them,”

Reece Jilderda, 10, Ohio Elementary School

“I like the trees because we climb them, and we can build swings on them.”

Saylor Jilderda, 10, Ohio Elementary School

“I like animals, because they’re cute and fluffy.”

Megan Davis, 10, Ohio Elementary School

“My favorite thing is the animals, I think they’re fun to care for, and they teach us responsibility.”
