Bread Comes To Life


Formats & editions


A Garden of Wheat and a Loaf to Eat

From a patch of wheatgrass in his backyard, award-winning filmmaker George Levenson takes readers on a tour of bread made from scratch. A thresher, a grinder, and finally a doughy combination of flour, water, yeast, and oil combine to make a freshly baked loaf of whole wheat bread. With energetic, poetic text and vivid photographs, the creative team behind PUMPKIN CIRCLE: THE STORY OF A GARDEN shows children that there's a lot more to this kitchen staple than they might expect.
