Library Media Connection

Each book in this series describes a particular food product and explains how that product gets from farmers’ fields into consumers’ homes. Brief introductory chapters are followed by chapters describing how the product is grown, harvested, produced, and distributed. The text is accurate, concise, and appropriate for the intended audience. Large, colorful photographs on every page add interest and nicely illustrate the text. Those teaching beginning dictionary skills would appreciate a more conventional approach to pronunciation in the glossary. Young readers will enjoy using this attractive, informative, and fascinating look at how food makes its way to their tables.
