The Popcorn Book

By Tomie de Paola

This engaging book entertains as it instructs. Designed as a quick and fun overview of popcorn, most of the information is accurate. The one exception is that the description of Indians holding an ear of popcorn over a fire on a stick is untrue. As American Indians pointed out when reviewing the book, it is absurd to believe anyone would pop corn in this way. As the kernels popped they would fly all over the place and be lost as a food. This can be used as a teachable moment to students to instruct them that just because something is written does not guarantee its accuracy.
