Fiction. Drawn with pastals. Gives students more information on science. A simple description of how corn was discovered and used by the Indians and how it came to be an important food throughout the world. Great for grades k-3.

I learned a few things about corn that I never knew! The book is good, not only for the information that it imparts, but because it makes the reader aware that there is a lot going on behind the scenes of each little thing in life. That kind of wonder leads to curiosity which may lead the reader to

seek out more knowledge through books. Students from South and Central America, as well as students with some American Indian ancestry, my be fascinated that their roots go back so far, and that they made such a contribution. Non-fiction, but with the nice pictures and novel information, it reads like a little story. Good book.
