Gr 1-4-From an American cafeteria to a refugee camp in Kenya, there's a consistent format to almost every spread, which features a meal from a specific city: story/origin of the lunch on the left, color photograph on the right. These simple visuals, like the single scoop of lentils served on a sheet of notebook paper in Lucknow, India, speak volumes. Though not in-depth, the explanations and diagrammed facts surrounding the pictures can provide many points of discussion about cultural differences, poverty, nutrition, world hunger, and activism.-Joanna K.
