What’s for Lunch, Corn
By Pam Robson
As with the other books in this series, the colorful, high-quality photographs complement the text and tell half the story. The book accurately depicts planting corn, corn growth, plant structure, pollination, mechanically harvesting sweet corn, and processing sweet corn. The book accurately portrays insect damage in one of the best photographs of the whole series, need for chemical intervention to halt that damage and aerial spraying. The books one short coming is that the author does not understand or explain the difference between sweet corn and field corn. It treats them as one and the same and the reader should address this with students. The book concludes with familiar foods made from corn and an excellent glossary.
