A book for very young readers that shows simply, clearly and step by step how things we use every day are produced. Procedures clearly illustrated in six large-format, foldout maps.

Do you know how a spoon, a bread, a T-shirt, a glassware, a chair or a book is produced? The production of bread, T-shirts and simple glassware, for instance, is similarly complex. Each of these apparently ordinary objects can be produced only from individual components, and each of these components must be mined, acquired, manufactured or produced by other means. Although our book is about objects in the commonest everyday use, thanks to the description of how these are produced child readers will learn a great many interesting things.
