Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Follow a photographer to Thailand as he documents the life of rice—from planting ceremony to eating—in a compelling narrative with vivid color images.

Rice is one of the most abundant and widely grown crops in the world today. In Thailand, rice is grown everywhere—and it is almost always a part of every meal. Photographer Richard Sobol invites us on a journey to Thailand to explore the life of rice: from the beginning of the growing season at the Royal Plowing Ceremony, to the hard work of transplanting and harvesting the rice plants, and finally ending with a delicious dinner—of rice, of course! Illustrated with beautiful photographs of the farmers and rice fields of Thailand, this is a firsthand account of one of the worlds most valuable and important crops.

Review:

"Sobol's Traveling Photographer series continues with this exploration of the cultivation of one of the planet's most critical foodstuffs. The author traveled to Thailand at the invitation of the king to attend a ceremony celebrating the opening of the rice-growing season. From there, Sobol moves to the Thai countryside, meeting and working with rice farmers, and explaining the harvesting process to readers. Sobol's prose is as clear as his photographs, and in tandem, they drive home the importance of this grain; additional information about rice and a glossary complete this focused and accessible account. Ages 5 — 8. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
