Plot: If you’ve ever wondered how sausages, skateboards, bottles, pencils, electric guitars, ice cream are made, this cool book—heavy on step-by-step pictures—shows how these and 20 foodstuffs and products are made. Step inside a factory and see how Legos are conceptualized and crafted from plastic granules, how cheese is fermented, soap is poured, etc. There are scads of photos, production time factoids, and did-you-know info-bites to stimulate the left frontal lobe.
Reading Level: 10 and younger
