Gr. 1-3. These books begin with children enjoying delicious meals, and then, true to the series title, Where Does Our Food Come From? explore how foods get to the table. With a full-color photo on every page and three or four simple sentences in clear type, the design of these small square books will attract readers for reports as well as young browsers. The focus of Milk is dairy cows, including detail about "chewing the cud," milking machines, the pasteurization process, and finally, "yummy foods" made from milk. Pasta begins with the farmer inspecting wheat grains, and then moves to an image of railroad cars bringing wheat flour to factories, where various pasta shapes, shown in the pictures, are made from dough and packaged. Both books talk about healthy eating and the food pyramid as well as delicious taste. For beginning researchers, there's a bibliography of books and Web sites as well as a glossary. Hazel Rochman
