In clear and eloquent language, Gary Paulsen pays tribute to a cycle of life—from seed to plant to tortilla. Workers till the black soil, operate the clanking machinery of the factory, and drive the trucks that deliver the tortillas back into the hands that will plant the yellow seeds. With Ruth Wright Paulsen’s expressive paintings, The Tortilla Factory brings forth the poetry and beauty of a simple way of life. “This title is beautiful to look at, and will also fit nicely into units on food, regional culture, art, and many other topics.”—School Library Journal

This story was about the tortilla process. It goes through the land and the workers, the seeds, the plants, etc. It talks about the happy workers and that they have brown hands. It was interesting to hear about the process and would be great for children to know where some of their food comes from when studying different cultures and just learning about where their food comes from.
