Usborne Look Inside Food

IMG_0296

Initially I didn’t plan to include children’s books on this blog because I thought it would be a bit cumbersome but some friends reached out to me and asked if I could include those books that I thought were particularly interesting so here we go.

Genre: Children’s Book

Page Count: 13

Publication Date: 2015

Summary: With over 60 flaps (and flaps within flaps), this is my daughter’s favorite book (she is almost 5).  Topics include growing grains, fruit and vegetables, food from animals, food from the sea, sweet things and why we eat. Each page talks about several different kinds of food and the illustrations are very bright and colorful.

Recommended: Yes – this book does a really good job of breaking down the science behind food into kid-friendly language.

If You’re Offended: No problems here.

Noteworthy Excerpt: “Rice seeds are sown by plane. They’re soaked in water first to make them heavy so they drop easily.” “Lobsters go into the trap to eat the food. They don’t know how to get out, so get stuck inside.”
