From Leather to Football

From Leather to Football
(Start to Finish)
By Robin Nelson
Learner Publishing Group, 2015. Nonfiction. 24 p.

Have you ever wondered how a football is made?  This simple nonfiction describes the process, step by step. A football starts as a piece of leather (no mention of where the leather came from), that is cut, sewed, laced, and filled with air.  Each spread has a short paragraph in large type, and a clear photograph.  The text is simple enough for younger grade school children.  Nelson includes a brief glossary and suggestions for further reading at the end of the book. Other books in this fun STEM series include From Iron to Car, From Oil to Gas, From Sheep to Sweater, and From Tree to Paper.
