    One thought on “Dr. Welch and the Great Grape Story”

    1. I found this book highly entertaining by discovering the fact that Dr. Welch, a dentist, invented grape juice because he disliked wine and wanted to substitute wine for something non-alcoholic drink made from grape in his church's communion services. This was a bit of a surprise to me and the fact that it was his son Charles Edgar Welch who managed to get the company up -and-running when his father could not.

    2. Why are Dr. Welch's eyes closed throughout much of the story? Why do some of the illustrations make him look like a madman? Why does the story end without telling how the juice made it to our table? These are some of the questions I and my children had. The topic is wonderful and I think that it is always an interesting story when we overcome adversity to accomplish something innovative, but I think too much of the history or seriousness was lost. I am not quite sure.
