Exploring the Everyday
Did you know that the cotton for your jeans was picked from a bush? How did the colorful wool in your sweater get from a sheepís back to a ball of yarn? Where did your soccer uniform, your rain boots, and your fleece jacket come from? And what does recycling plastic bottles have to do with anything? Visit farms, forests, and factories all over the world to find out how everything you wear has a story behind it. Back matter includes an authorís note, an illustratorís note, a bibliography, and an index.
Fun retro illustrations entice kids to follow the thread and learn where their clothes had their startóand how they were put together.
