The Tortilla Factory based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
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.
