Bread Lab

By Kim Binczewski and Bethany Econopouly

We do enjoy this book, even though it is a light on agriculture information. It is a good way to introduce students to bread, wheat, and the science of baking.


Summary: Today Aunt Mary wants to experiment with making whole wheat sourdough bread from scratch! As the family kitchen transforms into a bread lab, Iris is surprised that bread needs only four ingredients―flour, water, salt and starter. She also learns about the invisible microbes that make the dough rise, and how flour comes from wheat grown by farmers. It all seems magical, but it’s really science.
