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.
