From Corn to Cereal
By Roberta Basel
This is one of the best books in an excellent series of books depicting the various plant and animal sources of food and fibers. 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 seed to consumer. All of the images are of modern farm equipment and modern processing operations. The photos in this book greatly enhance the text. The growing cornfield is so vibrant one can almost hear the rustle of leaves in the breeze and the sweet corny sent that surrounds a cornfield on a hot and humid day. The book ends with a page on the Corn Palace of South Dakota, a glossary, recipe, and recommended Internet sites.
