    1. We got a themed box of books from the library about Farms and this was one of the books. My children found this completely boring. It was one of those books that had some great pictures, but words were everywhere, detailing every aspect of every piece of farm equipment. Maybe for older children this would be more informational, but my 5 yr old and twin 3 yr olds didn't really care for much except the pictures.

    2. 1985’s The Milk Makers ably illustrates what happens when promotion of an industry melds with children’s literature. The result can best be described as, well, “truthiness.” The book opens with a few Holsteins grazing on a verdant pasture. Cows are grazing in an open meadow. They are dairy cows, the milk makers. If only.Well again, maybe this was an accurate picture considering the date of publication of this book. The blogCounting Animalswrites of the American dairy industry: The percen [...]

    3. This story follows the path of milk from the hay a cow eats to the carton on a child's dining room table. Gibbons explains that many animals make milk, but we mostly use milk made from cows. She describes various kinds of cows and touches briefly on the inner workings of a cow's digestive system. Next comes information on milking, and what happens to milk at a dairy. Finally, the milk is shipped to supermarkets for people to buy. This is a wordy book for our age group, but the words are simple a [...]

    4. milk makers by Gail GibbonsMilk Makers is a book about how milk is made. There are 5 common breads of dairy cows. Dairy cows make most of the milk we use. Cows can make milk at 2 years old when she has had her own calf. She makes more milk than her calf can drink so we get the extra milk. Dairy cows eat food that is tough, course and hard to digest. The milk travels through the cows blood stream into her udder where the milk is made. Milk comes out of a cow's nipple called a teat. A cow can be m [...]

    5. Informative book about dairy cows and milk processing. The simple pictures with their parts labled are helpful in identifying little known facts. I would use this book when preparing to visit a farm, or when talking about cows and their anatomy. The description about milk processing is good to use after completing a graph about which students had milk, white or chocolate for lunch.

    6. Author: Gail GibbonsGrade Level: K-3Content: Milk process, cows, informational This book covers the cow on a pasture, and their producing of milk. Then it shows how the milk is processed through the factory and the ready for distribution to the public. This is a great labeled book that allows students with easy identification of items.

    7. We read this informational book on Tuesday. We talked about how we already know lots of information about cows. We made a list of what we already knew. We then realized that we can use what we already know, the pictures and diagrams, and our "imagination station" to help us "read" this book. I modeled this "reading" process.

    8. This book is mostly about cows and where cow milk comes from. It does show other animals that make milk. It also shows a baby calf, cows on the farm, milking by hand and by machine, and cow milk processing.

    9. This informational book in tells the whole process of the milking, to filling up our glass of milk. It gives the reader information on how cows are fed special feed, how the milking process works, and the process of how the milk reaches the consumer. A great informational book.

    10. Text and pictures explain how cows produce milk and how it is processed before being delivered to stores.
