"Cool explanations of how different fabrics (cotton, wool, rubber, silk, synthetic) are created and turned into clothing. It's like the How It's Made tv show turned into picture book form! Tons of fun and very informative.

There's a lot of information packed into each spread, but clear (and cute) illustrations help readers keep it all straight.

The numbering (or lack thereof) of different steps in the process felt inconsistent from fabric to fabric and was a little confusing for me. Other than that, I loved it. I imagine lots of kids poring over the pages, soaking up the info--and looking at their own clothes in a whole new way!

"Great for elementary school aged children. This book is currently being used in a 1st grade classroom. It was also given as a gift to a 5 year old who loved learning and pointing to the pictures as and adult read." said.

"On the page that discusses where do my jeans come from, it is obvious that they come from Asian sweatshops. It stereotypes and even somewhat disfigures the women sewing the jeans. This page alone makes the book not appropriate. Not sure why a publisher would let that happen. The book is fine otherwise. Such a shame." said.

"I picked this up at the library and it's really neat. It explains how fabrics are made for different clothes- rubber, wool, synthetic fibers, etc. in a way that kids can understand. I definitely learned a lot and I sew so I thought this was neat.

Like another reviewer mentioned, some of the pages show various cultural groups doing the work for that particular fabric. Perhaps it could've been represented better, but it's probably a pretty accurate representation of which cultural groups actually make which clothes.

Either way I have to really appreciate how much effort goes into our clothes after reading this. I hope my kids have the same appreciation! My kids are 2 and 4 years old and listened pretty well to this... They seemed to like the illustrations and step by step visual on how things are made.

"Fantastic book for any child who always wants to know where things come from. Well-written with very good illustrations. Appropriate for children ages 3-8. The text tells you a lot about what is happening in the illustrations- which are detailed enough that they offer plenty of opportunities to elaborate." said.
