Let's Pop, Pop, Popcorn!

Told through exuberant rhyme, a group of children shows the step-by-step process of how America's favorite snack comes about. Beginning with the planting of seeds, the cycle moves through the caretaking of the plant (watering and weeding), all the way to its harvest. Finally, it's time to shuck, then pop the kernels, and enjoy the finished product! Complete with back matter that includes scientific facts and activities, Let's Pop, Pop, Popcorn! offers a fun introduction to the process of creating popcorn.

Publisher’s Weekly - Let’s Pop, Pop, Popcorn!

“…Schumerth and Uhles offer a lively introduction to the science behind a favorite munchable.”

Kirkus Reviews - Let’s Pop, Pop, Popcorn!

“A spirited rhyming ode to popcorn and the fun it brings to all… While each line of text rarely strays from seven or eight syllables, there is great synergy between words and pictures, making it hard to sit still while turning the pages.”
