About the Book
Told through exuberant rhyme, a group of children shows the step-by-step process of how America's favorite snack comes about. Beginning with the planting of seeds, the cycle moves through the caretaking of the plant (watering and weeding), all the way to its harvest. Finally, it's time to shuck, then pop the kernels, and enjoy the finished product! Complete with back matter that includes scientific facts and activities, Let's Pop, Pop, Popcorn! offers a fun introduction to the process of creating popcorn.
About Cynthia Schumerth
Cynthia Schumerth knew she wanted to write picture books since her own children were young. She worked to hone her craft, writing on and off while raising a family and working full time in a Maximum Security Prison. Twenty-five years later, she decided it was time to concentrate all her efforts into getting published or put her pen away. Let’s Pop, Pop, Popcorn (Sleeping Bear Press) will be released March 15, 2021. It is Cynthia’s debut picture book . I Am Horton (Random House Books for Young Readers), her second book, was released first, in September 2020.
Cynthia enjoys spending time outdoors. You’ll often find her hiking, swimming, kayaking, or trying to keep up with her husband on a bike ride. Cynthia and her husband live in Wisconsin with their rescue dog, Chance. She has two amazing grown children who can’t wait to share their mother’s books with their own children someday.
