The Cotton in Your T-Shirt. Young Discovery Library Series: 40.
This book is part of an international series developed as a collaboration among the author, the illustrator, an advisory group of elementary school teachers and an academic specialist on the subject. This book answers questions about the history, use, and methods of producing cotton. Among the questions the book answers are: How long have people been spinning and weaving cotton? How is cotton grown? How is the fiber made into yarn? How is the fabric dyed? The book illustrates both machine and hand production of cotton and cotton products. Varieties of cotton fabrics are noted, and an array of fiber-producing plants are described. Profuse colored illustrations include two maps showing cotton-producing regions around the world and in the United States. (DB)
