Glass, horses, apples ....

No, it's not a new version of the old rock-paper-scissors game. It's a series of Easy Reader books that have recently come into the Youth Services department, explaining how everyday things or animals are made, or grow. A tree becomes paper, sand becomes glass, maple tree sap becomes syrup, a foal becomes a horse ... it's amazing how little we know about the simplest things all around us, especially since most people are no longer farmers or craftsmen. These new books will help introduce young people to lots of new/old things. You might like:
From Sea to Salt
From Wheat to Bread
From Milk to Cheese
From Iron to Car
... and many of the 24 others in the set.
