My kids and I love Everybody Eats Lunch. We talk about what kids eat on each page and it opens up so many different conversations about other peoples' lives. It's also helped us try new foods as the recipes are easy to follow and there is an appeal to trying something from the book. I find my kids comparing the clocks on the different pages and the children's names. The map with the tabs for locating each child is an added bonus. When we try a new food we talk about how far away that child lives from where we live.

Two nights ago I made the pickles and rice balls with smoked salmon. I even brought the ingredients to the office and made my own version for lunch yesterday. Since then we've been searching for more Japanese foods we can make and I've started to visit a local Asian market. It turns out my kids also love bean cakes.

I've also made several of the Mexican dishes. After not being able to find Dulce de Leche at Whole Foods, I ventured into a Mexican market and found many new foods for my family to try. We also enjoyed the Rusks from South Africa and have added several of the fruits.

Everybody Eats Lunch is the first children's cookbook that has entertained my kids and introduced me to adult foods I want to eat. It's our new favorite gift and I look forward to future books by the author.

No doubt, buy it! The imaginative and cheerful illustrations make the book come to life!!!! Colorful, enticing, full of energy, Mr. Thomas captures the essence of what excites kids! I'd like to see more from him.

Conceptually - great! In a time when we hardly think about what we put in ourselves for nourishment - this book really connects us to taking the time and thought to create something special while spending time with one another learning. What a great perspective to give children about the world they live in.

Highly recommend.

Very nice book but did not like the "windows" because they were just sitting in place, not attached to the book. They kept falling out and my grandchildren soon lost interest as I tried to catch the loose ones that kept falling out of the book. Sorry, but the $15.00 cost was a bit of a sacrifice for us.

This book is OK, but the pull out foods with recipes underneath tend to fall out of the book after it is used the first time. Also, I thought this book would be a little more colorful and include more cultures. I will be using it with a nursery school class. We will see how they respond to it.

I am the mother of 3 and have read many children's cookbooks. "Everbody Eats Lunch" is unique and fun! It works on so many levels. Children love the pictures,colors and puzzles. All ages enjoy learning from children of different countries and the delicious recipes! Parents will appreciate the learning skills that go with each section as well as the great recipes! Adults will love the food, also. Be honest, aren't you ready to branch out from peanut butter & jelly or mac & cheese?

This is a fun interactive book to interest kids in cooking while giving them an appreciation for other cultures. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because the puzzle pieces are not easy to put back in their places which may result in lost pieces over time. Clever idea overall and nice addition to a child's library.

My kids love this book! It's one part puzzle, one part cookbook, one part workbook, and one part social studies book.

They love to take out the pieces from the entire book and reassemble them.

A great way to teach kids so many things--cooking, culture, math, reading, telling time, and, most importantly, that there's lunch beyond chicken nuggets.

We cook something from it at least every week and the recipes are well-tested.

Everybody Eats Lunch is a joy to read. My 4 year old niece absolutely loves it. Every other page profiles a child from a different country, when, and what they eat for lunch. The illustration is adorable and there are recipes for each of the meals shown. My niece's favorite so far is the "Bunny Chow" from South Africa.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to a share a fun an educational gift with a child.
