That’s exactly the case when it comes to Ann Morris’s Bread, Bread, Bread with photographs by Ken Heyman. I ran across the book on a list of books about environmental and social awareness and was lucky enough to discover that our library carried it. The text alone doesn’t tell you that much. Sure, bread is crunchy or soft, it’s good for you (what a revolutionary thought in the west! I was so happy to read that bread makes you strong and healthy to my child), and people use it to sop up eggs and so forth. But the real story emerges when you see the first photo in the book—which is of a young girl carrying a tray of flat breads on her head.
