From Kernel to Corn

By Robin Nelson

This is one in an excellent series of books depicting the various plant and animal sources of food and fibers that come from plants and animals. As an early reader book, the content is minimal but fairly accurate. Each page has one to five sentences. The image of a farmer plowing a field is not accurate, but the rest of the book is fairly sound in image and text. It depicts sweet corn production from seedling to consumer. There is an excellent page describing why farmers use pesticides to control weeds and insects that compete with and/or damage crops.
