I Like Corn
By Robin Pickering
This early-reader book provides basic information about corn. It does not differentiate between sweet corn and field corn but discusses both as food, a problem on two levels. The text describes corn as a vegetable. We eat sweet corn as a vegetable but is (botanically) a fruit. On the other hand, field corn is considered a grain. This book nicely depicts corn growing and one method of irrigation, corn in the husk, on the cob, tamale making, and foods made with corn. The book ends with a nice glossary.
