Bread Comes to Life
How is bread made? Where is it from? To make bread from scratch, start in a backyard patch! Come watch a baker turn a homegrown crop of wheat into a homemade loaf to eat. This book tells the story, in all its glory, of the sowing, growing, reaping, threshing, milling, mixing, kneading, shaping, rising, baking, and breaking of whole grain bread. It's a soil-tilling, dough-stretching, belly-filling, spirit-catching celebration of the staff of life. You'll never look at a slice of bread the same way again.

Great description of how bread is made from the wheat fields to the kitchen. Large photographs and a sentence of two per page. Written for children.
