Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Food and travel writer Caldicott offers an alphabetic photo-essay celebrating foodstuffs around the world. From apricot to zucchini, each topic and letter is introduced with crisp full-color photos and a brief paragraph containing pertinent facts. Most selections will be familiar to children (bananas, coconuts, dates, eggs), and some letters highlight food-related topics rather than edibles. For example, “J is for Journeys” details efforts involved in obtaining food and water, while “K is for Kitchens” provides a look at food preparation areas around the world. The photos are generally well chosen, often feature children, and mostly depict locales outside Europe and the Americas. Although no map or back matter is provided, and the tricky letters are not remarkable (“X is for Oxen”), the book does offer a revealing look at food in other cultures. A good choice for social studies units, this would pair well with Pat Mora’s Yum! ¡Mmm! ¡Qué Rico! (2007). Grades 1-3. --Kay Weisman


"D is for Dates. Dates, like these on sale in a market in Morocco,
are a very important food for people who live in hot, dry countries."
