This book is great - the illustrations are unique and imaginative and the content so inventive and thought provoking. The children I look after love it because it makes them laugh and feeds their imagination with real life facts! so clever. It's interactive and varied enough that they will keep going back to it.
I particularly appreciate how it initiates conversation (usually around the dinner table) about where food comes from. This often leads to more questions and discussion of bigger topics like animal rights, poo and where all the contents of our fruit bowl come from! Also.. I recently heard that a child was surprised that tuna was actually a type of fish because they always thought it was just a food in a can!! This book challenges these ideas...
Highly highly recommended! There's something for all your kids.. maybe you'll learn something too!Read moreLess
I loved this book, kids will read it and not even know they are being taught, and it is going to help children develop a healthy relationship with food. About where it comes from - good and bad, what you can do with it - good and bad and where it goes - good and stinky.
It does cover somecookery but it isnot a recipe book. It is about food, where it comes from, what you can do with it and where it goes. It covers things like how animals a kept in different types of farming...pigs, chickens. Where different cuts of meat comes from etc...sounds boring I know, trust me it is done very cleverly and interactively. I Like the 'where your bum has been map' to mark off the countries you have poo'd in!
It's a nice size, it's not too big to be a 'reader' but has a good solid quality to it. I think it would make a good gift for grandparents to give when they don't want to be buying 'new fangled stuff'. They will think they are buying an educational book but your kids will actually enjoy it tooRead moreLess
