About the Book
Perennial nonfiction favorite Gail Gibbons turns her spotlight on corn. Popcorn, corn on the cob, corn dogs, cornflakes - corn is used in many of children's favorite foods. But what is the story behind this popular grain? Gail Gibbons dishes up the details about corn's cultivation, uses, and more, offering a cornucopia of information in her typical style. Be sure to celebrate National Popcorn Day on January 19.
