Twins Emily and Ethan are learning about the economy in school. To help the children better understand the entire process, their teacher takes the class on a field trip to a supply factory. At first the kids think it'll be boring, but then they learn that so much goes into the making of just one simple pencil, that it really is a miracle that one exists.
Another score by Connor Boyack. This is a great book that takes a giant idea, the economy, and puts it into terms that children can understand. It is not babyish either, it is right on grade level. At first I was confused by the premise that no one person can make a pencil, but as I read on I understood where the author was going. He explains that a pencil doesn't just pop into being, wood needs to be cut, graphite mined and metal melted. It all involves people around the world working together in harmony, not knowing what their product might end up being.
The end of the book has bonus info, including a glossary and a short bio on Leonard Read, whose essay, I, Pencil, inspired the book. Really good stuff. Of course, I can't forget the illustrations by Elijah Stanfield. He does a great job using bold colors and fun renderings. This is another must read.
What a great educational little book this is, very colorful pages that just drew him into the story. He couldn’t believe that all the people it took to make a pencil! He did begin to understand when we read through the story, and it rather clicked with him.
He was able to see the correlation, and was putting it to making other things. He could see that most of the things we have really do have something to do with another person or country.
I received this book through Fire and Ice and Little Red Reads, and was not required to give a positive review.
