Today my 9-year-old granddaughter, Libbie, is helping me review books. Here's her first review of a recent Sleeping Bear Press picture book.

Let's Pop, Pop, Popcorn! by Cynthia Schumerth, is a good book for little kids showing them the process of making popcorn. It includes how to plant, water, and grow corn and all the work that goes into it.
I think kids will also like this book's clever rhymes.
The illustrations, by Mary Reaves Uhles, are also very well done and show exactly how to grow corn and make popcorn.
This is an easy book to read and it makes me want to get up, pop some buttered popcorn, and eat it! You can always sit down and eat popcorn while you are reading this fun book (just make sure not to get buttery fingers on the book! 🍿 😂). This book was very good and I recommend it to 3-6 year olds. Or just about any age!
Did you know there are four types of corn? If you read the STEM information and activities you will learn the differences between dent corn, flint corn, sweet corn, and popcorn, as well as the layers inside each kernel. Readers will discover what old maids are and have fun with two different popcorn activities. And like Libbie suggested, there's always good eating when someone says, Let's Pop, Pop, Popcorn!
