This book is very informative and shows kids of many ages where our clothes come from. This book adds appreciation to the art of agricultural practices and shows kids that people are working to help provide a certain lifestyle. Children will learn through this book the meaning of handwork and and also the importance of recycling. I liked this book because it as informative and unique to a certain topic. We are given materials from the earth and artist make clothes as a means of expression of individuality.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763677507, Hardcover)

Fun retro illustrations entice kids to follow the thread and learn where their clothes had their start—and how they were put together.

Did you know that the cotton for your jeans was picked from a bush? How did the colorful wool in your sweater get from a sheep’s back to a ball of yarn? Where did your soccer uniform, your rain boots, and your fleece jacket come from? And what does recycling plastic bottles have to do with anything? Visit farms, forests, and factories all over the world to find out how everything you wear has a story behind it. Back matter includes an author’s note, an illustrator’s note, a bibliography, and an index.

(retrieved from Amazon Wed, 22 Jul 2015 11:27:13 -0400)

Easy-to-read text, accompanied by full-color illustrations, introduces young readers to the processes involved in producing the materials used in clothing and turning them into such garments as cotton jeans, a silk dress, and rubber boots.
