Farmers weed at noon, and their sweat falls onto the field. Have you ever eaten rice? Do you eat it every day? Do you know where it comes from? It comes from a lot of hard work! What we eat are grains of rice, which are called “gu” in China. The husks of the grains are polished off, and the polished grains are called “mi.” Once those grains are cooked, they’re called “fan.” A farmer has to raise all of the rice that we eat. Let’s visit a farm together and learn more about a hardworking rice farmer’s life!
