The front cover features a drawn color illustration by Ora Walker. The illustration contains school children and their teacher walking toward the bakery's entrance. A baker in a all white outfit is holding the door open for them. At the top, the title "Bread in the Making." The back cover is filled with a drawn color illustration of red bakery trucks leaving the bakery. To the right, there is a school boy waving to the trucks. In the center, the phrase "Try New Tip-Top with that new Good Taste" is written in red, white and blue colors next to a loaf of bread. On the bottom, there is a stamp for An American Institute of Baking Publication. The inside pages tell the story of how to make bread from start to finish. Some of the steps that are explained include the mixing, bread divider, proof box, de-panning, slice and wrap, and delivery. Each step has a drawn color illustration to go along with the story. On page fifteen, there is a section for kids to write down the words that needed to be unscrambled from page fourteen. At the bottom, there are blank lines where kids can write down what bakery they visited and when.
