Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- Perspectives on the variety of breads and hats around the world. The vivid color photographs, one or two per page, show people engaged in lively activities while displaying their bread or wearing their hats. Each picture offers a strong ethnic identity or a thought-provoking human interaction, with captions of only a few words in large print. An unusual index in each volume gives background information about the pictures, citing the countries of origin and a few facts about each type of bread or kind of hat. These books shed new light on common items and encourage discussion. While Hats is the very worthy opening act, Bread is the virtuoso performance. Here readers are introduced to French bread, hot baguettes, tortillas, chappatties, pizza, pitas, pretzels, and peanut-butter-jelly bread. People of all ages, colors, sorts, and conditions are baking bread, giving bread, selling bread, breaking bread, and eating bread. A wonderful book! --Ruth Semrau, Lovejoy School, McKinney, Tex.

"Engaging, well-composed color photos from all the inhabited continents celebrate the diversity of the world's people." -- -- Kirkus (pointer)

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.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book for early elementary school age children. It is multi-cultural showing hats of people from all over the globe. This book will tie in nicely for a teacher that is interested in providing a thematic unit on people. Beautiful full-color photographs.

As a preschool teacher, I used this book in my 'All About Me' unit since we have several cultural groups represented in our group. We use this book again as we talk about winter and winter clothes. This a great book for a unit on cultures in addition to Ann Morris, "Families" and "Homes". We have our Children's Atlas at hand so we can quickly locate representative countries. Ann Morris books are a must for cultural awareness! highly recommend!

The pictures are great for illustrating the variety of hats. Of course this book just scratches the surface but it gave my students and idea of how interesting and different hats can be.
