By Gail Gibbons
As with most of the books developed by Gail Gibbons this one depicts the agricultural information correctly. The artwork is simple but correct. Unlike most books about corn this book describes the difference between the four major types of corn and provides further descriptors of their individual uses. It is unique in that it depicts the corn silk as the pollen tube that it is and an illustration shows the process of fertilization of a single kernel on an ear. It also depicts the multitude of ways in which corn is used in a variety of food and non-food items. If there was only one book on corn that could be purchased for a school this would be the book that we recommend.
