From Cane to Sugar
By Roberta Basel
This is another in an excellent series of books depicting the various plant and animal source of food and fibers that come from plants and animals. As an early reader book, the content is short but fairly accurate. Each page has three to five sentences. It does a very complete depiction from cane to consumer. All of the images are of modern farm equipment and modern processing operations. Particular attention is paid to the total sugar making process. A few of the photographs are common in several books but this book has additional images that clarify the sugar-making process. This book depicts sugar making from sugar cane but also includes sugar beets. The book ends with a glossary and index.
