SUMMARY ´ The Corn Grows Ripe REVIEW ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ó Dorothy Rhoads Dorothy Rhoads Ó 9 SUMMARY A Newbery Honor BookCan Tigre find the strength and courage to support his familyWhen Tigre's father is badly injured in an accident the family is thrown into turmoil Who will plant and harvest the corn that the. If I were to simply rate Dorothy Rhoads 1956 The Corn Grows Ripe one of the Newbery Honours for 1957 uncritically and as a story in and of itself I most probably would be considering a high three star ranking but most definitely not as yet four stars as aesthetically speaking Jean Charlot s accompanying illustrations are just not all that visually pleasing to and for my eyes For even considering issues regarding potential datedness etc and that the author is obviously is clearly writing about a culture that is not her own Tigre s struggles to prepare his family s corn fields when his father breaks his leg and is unable to work are uplifting engaging and encouraging And even though I might indeed and well kind of cringe a trifle at the slash and burn farming practices depicted and described in the Corn Grows Ripe let us be honest and face the truth here that this type of agriculture was basically how ALL farming used to be and that even the wheat corn canola fields of today in developed in so called first world nations originally had to be taken from often virgin forests just like how Tigre has to cut down and burn trees in order to end up with the corn field his family reuires to survive to live However and that all having been said there are in my opinion simply too too many factual mistakes with regard to especially Catholic feast days shown in Dorothy Rhoads narrative for me to consider granting than a high two star rating at best for The Corn is Ripe And no I am not trying to be curmudgeonly and unnecessarily pedantic here but come on if you are going to be using specific calendar dates for Catholic feast days and the like you should at least do the reuired research to get the dates right And I personally also cannot understand how the author could have made such a huge mistake with regard to Saint John s Day how Dorothy Rhoads could place the day in February when it is in late June on June 24th and this is also and indeed just one example of such an oversight of such an error and I am also now left wondering whether the author whether Dorothy Rhoads has eually gotten some if not perhaps even much of the specifically Mayan cultural information wrong as when I find such errors in a given book I of course and naturally will also wonder whether there are Not at all a bad or in any way an inappropriate story and actually in many ways a sweetly delightful readable and encouraging tale with important messages and lessons is The Corn Grows Ripe but I personally just cannot consider than two stars for not only such blatant factual errors but especially with regard to the erroneous calendar dates of and for so many of the specifically Catholic feast days for errors that even rudimentary research of any Catholic church calendar could so easily have avoided
