Description
Did you know that Americans eat two million tons of corn per year? Can corn really be used to make diapers? And is it true that the kidnapped Pocahantas was ransomed for a boat full of corn? Having extolled the wonders of honeybees and peanuts in his previous books, Charles Micucci turns his attention here to a crop that comes in many colors and varieties, and lends itself to a surprising variety of foods and goods. Along with Micucci's charming mixed media illustrations, this book for readers 4 to 8 features a timeline of our 4,000-year cultivation of corn, an account of the crop's significance to Native American cultures, and a host of accessible scientific facts.
