About the Author:

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8-Each book begins with a history of how production has changed over time, discusses current methods, and relates how food is processed and brought to market. While the focus is on farming in industrialized nations, the authors also present traditional farming methods used in other countries. In addition to typical American foods, the texts also mention common fare from other parts of the world. For example, Meat mentions emus and guinea pigs and Grains highlights quinoa and millet. Although the authors do raise some of the issues surrounding factory farming, they remain fairly neutral, allowing readers to draw their own conclusions. Some contentious issues are not fully discussed, however; the books refer to cloning and genetic engineering, but don't mention why they are controversial. With straightforward narratives augmented with diagrams, sidebars, color photos, and reproductions, these titles will be useful for report writers.α(c) Copyright 2011.
