Reviews
Agricultural Inventions: At the Top of the Field

“The chapter on pesticides and GMOs does not shy away from the dangers and controversy and presents the pros and cons of such practices. The book concludes with a timeline of developments in the field as well as a glossary and index. This book is focused towards upper elementary readers. Pictures of scientists, diagrams, and photos help to clarify and extend the discussion. Kids will be intrigued with the book as they learn about the familiar names that grace their food packages.” -NSTA Recommends, 02/14
