Corn Is Maize by Aliki (Illustrator)
What's so great about corn?
Popcorn, corn on the cob, cornbread, tacos, tamales, and tortillas.
All of these and many other good things come from one amazing plant.
Aliki tells the story of corn: How Native American farmers thousands
of years ago found and nourished a wild grass plant and made it an important
part of their lives. They learned the best ways to grow and store and
use its fat yellow kernels. And then they shared this knowledge with
the new settlers of America.
