How Did That Get in My Lunchbox?: The Story of Food Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fresh retro artwork lures little readers on a tasty trip to farms, dairies, and more. Yum!

The best part of a young childs day is often opening a lunchbox and diving in. But how did all that delicious food get there? Who made the bread for the sandwich? What about the cheese inside? Who plucked the fruit? And where did the chocolate in that cookie get its start? From planting wheat to mixing flour into dough, climbing trees to machine-squeezing fruit, picking cocoa pods to stirring a vat of melted bliss, here is a clear, engaging look at the steps involved in producing some common foods. Healthy tips and a peek at basic food groups complete the menu.

Review:

"With reader-directed prose and cheerfully retro artwork, Butterworth and Gaggiotti use a balanced meal — sandwich, fruit, veggies, juice box, and cookie — to explain how foodstuffs make it from farms, dairies, and factories into kids' lunches. It's clear that the book's goal is encouraging kids to truly think about their food: how it's made and where it comes from, yes, but also how it tastes ('Bite into your cheese — it's creamy and smooth, but tasty, too — and TINGLY on your tongue!') and what it does for their bodies. If it feels a tad optimistic given the modern dominance of frozen, fast, and processed food, it's an accessible primer for families looking to foster healthy habits. Ages 5 — 8. (Jan.)"
