In this book we find out all about the history of corn (called maize by the native peoples of Mexico and Central America), the names of the parts of a corn plant, the different types of corn, their uses, planting and harvesting of the corn crop and its many uses. And, as many of us know, "corn can also be nutritious and delicious."
I haven't met a Gail Gibbons book that hasn't been colorful and charming, to say nothing of informative. Even the reluctant reader will enjoy reading the text and poring over the busy art work. In the back of the book there are additional corn facts. Gee whiz . . . I didn't know that there are usually about 800 kernels in a corn cob!
This is our first Gail Gibbons book, and it has inspired us to check out more of her books at the library.
My only complaint is that the book says some corn is made into "silage", but it doesn't define the word. If 1/2 stars were possible, I'd have given it 4 1/2 stars based on that lack of explanation, but since it's not possible, it still leans more towards 5 stars than 4.
