This is an early reader book about three sentences per page. Vocabulary words are bold and a glossary defines those words in the back of the book. The content is accurate and for an early reader book tells the story very well. The text deals with corn's origins but is not quite accurate here. It states that corn grew wild and Native Americans learned how to use it. This is not the case. Corn was developed by humans from its wild ancestors. That is the only technical inaccuracy and is a relatively minor one.
