Theme: Learning how things work, like milk, is an essential part of understanding how our world works.

It’s fresh and cold, foamy and white, and one of nature’s most nutritious foods—milk! Everyone learns about this delicious liquid as this book explains the process of how cows produce milk and how it is processed before being delivered to stores.

LeVar visits California’s dairy country where he receives a lesson on milking a cow by hand, as well as an introduction to the modern way of milking and feeding 600 cows. Viewers get a factory tour and see how cheese is made.
