Henry Holt, 1995
As summer mellows into fall, tiny green sprouts of wheat push up through the soil. Through the winter these sprouts are protected by a thick blanket of snow. The wheat begins to grow again after the spring thaw, and by midsummer the stalks are tall and flowering. When they go to seed and dry out, it is time to harvest and sell the plump, dry kernels. August comes again, and it's time to plant more winter wheat.
Through simple, evocative language and detailed watercolor illustrations, this book shows how farmers and wildlife can share the same piece of land by following the cycle of winter wheat.
