The list author says: "Here's my list of some fabulous children's books that revolve around food. The books are listed in order of how soon my kids would attempt to read them on their own - although the pictures alone make all the books real treasures. These are classics that we read over and over again."
"Amy Wilson Sanger's books are just genius! The pictures are so creative and the wording is so fun. Her "World Snacks" series is so cool and is an easy way to help kids expand their horizons about all the different food choices that exist in the world."
"The collages in Amy Wilson Sanger's books are a visual playground for kids. I love the extra touches that she adds with the food definitions at the end of the book - lots of great food titles from her! Also check out Let's Nosh."
"We bought copies of this book for my daughter's entire kindergarten class when they were studying African countries. A fun, lively tale that has a cute surprise at the end. My daughter tried passionfruit for the first time as a result of reading this book!"
"My kids love the sweet pictures in this book and it introduces lots of Chinese foods. The endpapers of the book are always mesmerizing as we search for all the different foods. Also check out the The Ugly Vegetables by Lin."
"This book is great for kids who appreciate stories with a fairy tale quality and can tolerate a small amount of suspense. Boys and girls will enjoy this take of how the pretzel came to be - I love the persistence and perseverance that the book illustrates."
"This is a book that my kids continue to read - even though one is now in fifth grade. It's so fascinating to see what happens next as a boy invites friends over to dinner and his mother cautions him about not having enough food to feed all their guests."
