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.

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!

I read this book to my daughter last night. This book is the worst. I thought we were going to learn about hats! I'm a pretty big hat guy, and this book is a total let down. They don't name one hat! Instead they categorize hats. They have pictures of types of hats and simply put hard hats, soft hats, cloth hats, work hats.. The author of the book has a picture of her wearing a bike helmet incorrectly. Bike helmets are safety equipment! Not a fashion accessory! I'm hoping I did'nt damage my daughter's development by reading her this book. Ann Morris really phoned this one in. I didn't learn one thing about hats, I just expected more. This may have stunted my daughter's head wear education.

You can tell from the pictures that this book has been around for a long time, but I like the message of it. In very simple language, it communicates that hats are worn in many cultures and for many purposes. My son had a long-time obsession with hats which is why I bought this book, but he still asks for it frequently even though that phase has passed. I am a teacher and I love the multi-cultural aspect of this book. Even though we live in the city and my son sees people from all over the world, it is different seeing pictures of different communities.

From 1993, this book is a little dated. The world does change a bit in 20 years. Still, the photography is beautiful and it is a great way to start conversations about how there are different places in the world and the people who live there do not have the same lifestyle as the one we live.

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.
