Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This simple title is part of the "First Facts" series, designed for easy access to information for young students. It is a straightforward yet complete and detailed description of how corn travels on an amazing journey from the field where it grows to factories where it is processed to be sold all over the world. The colorful illustrative photographs allow readers to see farms where corn is growing, the production line where corn is processed, and factories where corn is packaged for distribution. The book is written in short and direct sentences. The vocabulary is carefully controlled, and new vocabulary is highlighted and included in the glossary. There are clear chapter headings, fun facts included as sidebars, and an index. Children will enjoy the final page of this book that contains step-by-step directions for making a tasty treat out of cornflakes cereal. In or out of the classroom, elementary students will want to read this highly informative and interesting book about a favorite and familiar food, corn. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
