Fresh and cold, foaming from a carton or bottle, milk is one of nature's most nutritious foods. For this, we must thank the milk makers.
In The Milk Makers, Gail Gibbons begins with the cow, describing its four-stomach method of producing milk, how it is milked on a modern dairy farm, and then how milk is transported to a dairy plant, processed, and loaded onto refrigerated trucks -- with other dairy products -- for delivery to stores.
Step by step, Gail Gibbons's clear, carefully researched text and crisply colorful pictures tell the wonderful story of milk.
