"Engaging!" -- --Kirkus

From the Back Cover

What kind of bread do you eat? A bagel? A tortilla? A baguette? All over the world, wherever there are human beings, someone is eating bread. Ann Morris's simple text and Ken Heyman's dazzling full-color photographs reveal for young readers how people eat -- and how people live -- the world over.

More About the Author

Ann Morris's many books include Families, Bread Bread Bread, Hats Hats Hats, On the Go, and Loving. She lives in New York City. As a children's book writer, Ann Morris has been able to successfully integrate her varied experiences in teaching young children, travel, writing, and editing. Having grown up in the polyglot public schools of New York City, where each child's ethnic heritage was revealed by his name or by the contents of the lunch box from home filled with sausages, egg rolls, matzos, or pizza, she developed a strong Interest In cultures other than her own. "I'm a gypsy by nature," she says. "I always have my suitcase packed."
She and photographer Ken Heyman once traveled across the United States to document the lives often different families. Both she and the teacher's pupils liked the snake charmer/teacher who taught class in a circus trailer with her favorite boa around her neck. Although Ms. Morris has never tried this stunt he herself, she has taught children in public and private schools in New York City, and adults at Bank Street College, Columbia Teachers College, New York University, and Queens College of the City University of New York. More recently she has been teaching writing for children at The New School.
Ann Morris left teaching to become editorial director of Scholastic's early childhood department. Now she devotes her professional time to writing and all her other time to people watching, music in any and all Forms, cat care, cooking and eating, and travel. All of these experiences, she says, provide material for her books.
In Israel Ms. Morris was caught up in the enchantment of the place as well as the conflicts that are a consequence of its history. One of her books, When Will They Stop Fighting? (Atheneum), reflects her concern about children who have become the victims of these conflicts.

This is a good book for your unit at school on Food/Farming.

The book also illustrates how even though some things are the same, they can also be quite different.

Format: Paperback
I agree with the other reviewers that the pictures are wonderful, and the text (though minimal) is good. My 3 YO son really likes this book, and as others have mentioned, it works on several levels. I can see us using this book for several years to come to emphasize the fact that different cultures around the world DO have lots of things in common. The only reason I did not give this book 5 stars was because the captions giving you more information about content of the pictures is all collected at the back of the book. So if you want to know whether the picture is from the Philippines or the US, for example, you have to keep flipping back and forth. It seems like there could have been a way to incorporate these endnotes into the text directly without destroying the effectiveness of the book as a charming elementary reader.

Format: Paperback
This little book talks about bread. There aren't very many words, but the few that there are augment a child's vocabulary, yet are easy to understand. The most important part of this book are the pictures. Using pictures of people all over the world eating all kinds of different bread, helps children to begin to understand the bigger world around them. The book also illustrates how even though some things are the same, they can also be quite different. The book also contains a helpful section at the end for parents and other educators. It's a small world after all.

We may all live in different places, speak different languages and end up having completely different life experiences, but many of us have a common food. My wife and I love this book as much as our children do. It is very simple, extremely genuine and makes me want to try all the world's bread.

an interesting way of introducing young children to the world and cultures around them. Bread is one of the few things all people have in common and the realism of the photographs leave the reader with a broader knowledge of this small world.

Our whole family likes this book. My daughter is not yet two but she loves Ann Morris' entire series of books and likes to identify things in each photograph. We look at the photos and talk about different kinds of bread, different ways of eating, and what different things might taste like. The photos are obviously dated but I don't believe that alters the impact of what the author and photographer are trying to do. There is one photo in particular the the adults enjoy sniggering at (I'll let you guess which one!)

We have also started baking the different types of bread in the book together so she can jump right in to the content (what kid doesn't love to have her/his hands in dough?). As she grows, we'll continue to read these books, moving on from identifying simple items to talking about cultures, traditions, environments, geography, and etc. In the final pages of each Ann Morris book there are maps and descriptions of locations/actions for each page that allow readers and children to talk about where places are in relation to one another. I recommend these books for curious children starting at age 18 months and all the way up into the school years.

This book like the others in the series is great. My 4 yr old & 14month old love both this book. The pictures are vivid, the text is simple...a perfect jump-off for an engaging conversation about the similarities we all share throughout the world.

A terrific collection of photos that introduces both similarities and difference. The text is very simple, but more info for parents to explain is included in the back, so this can serve very young and not quite as young children. (My daughter enjoyed it at 1 1/2)
