Did you know that the cotton for your jeans was picked from a bush? How did the colorful wool in your sweater get from a sheep's back to a ball of yarn? Where did your soccer uniform, your rain boots, and your fleece jacket come from? And what does recycling plastic bottles have to do with anything? This book introduces young readers to the processes involved in producing the materials used in clothing and turning them into such garments as cotton jeans, a silk dress, and rubber boots.
