Summary:
This book is about the process of how wheat is made. It explains the process of how wheat is planted and what it looks like when it is ready to be picked. It also explains the process of everything that a farmer has to do it.

Personal Reaction:

I liked this book because of the detail but how simple they made it so the children can understand it.

Classroom Extensions:

1. If there is a local farmer or a farm you can take a field trip to a wheat field.

2. The children can plant a seed or some kind of plant and grow it inside the classroom so they can understand the process better.
