Wheat (A True Book)
By Elaine Landau
As with the other books written by this author this text provides an accurate and comprehensive look at wheat. From the early cultivation of wheat over 17,000 years ago through modern culture today, the text and photos tell wheat's story. The author has even depicted and described the milling process. The author does a good job describing the six classes of wheat and difference between winter and spring wheat. The one small flaw appears in the caption of a photo which identifies large round bales of wheat straw as bales of hard red winter wheat. The book ends with a good glossary.
