Reviews

"This will prove to be an attractive, useful book for food and nutrition units in the lower grades. This volume may even lure children (and adults) back to the farm."--Kirkus Reviews

"Meet vegetable farmers, dairy farmers, fishermen, and the other people who produce, raise, and harvest all the things we eat. Mouthwatering photographs."--Bank Street Best Children's Books of the Year "Spotlighting a diverse group of men, women, and children, Rotner's photo-essay shows the people who grow the crops, raise the animals, and catch the fish we eat. The text encourages kids to think about the sources of their food and thank those who labor to provide it, while the vivid color photos include scenes of gardeners, farmers, and fishermen as well as children enjoying the food."--Book Links "The bright, clear photos and the minimal text, which includes quotes from farmers and interesting facts ('Corn always has an even number of rows'), make for a simple but enjoyable reding experience. A good introduction to the farm-to-table movement for elementary students."--School Library Journal
