Yummy Tummy Tuesday - The World in your Lunchbox

The World in your lunchbox: This is a yummy ‘factopedia’! Lunchboxes are every mom’s concern and every kid’s ‘not this again’. But this book makes the ‘everyday’ fascinating.  You discover how foods from around the world have made their way into your lunchbox in this book. 

The book is written journal-style and written for kids though anyone who wants to learn fun food facts will enjoy the book. It is divided into seven chapters for each day of the week, with a different lunch combination covered each time.  Fun facts, wacky illustrations, quirky humor make each chapter and each lunch totally enjoyable.  Each lunch item is described and made delicious with a bit of introduction, some history and the science behind it. 
Kids will definitely enjoy the top ten facts (in addition to the facts included for each food item throughout the book) included at the end of the book.  The Further Reading section includes more wonderful reads for foodies out there. 

In Summary: This book is delicious – a great read for all.
Rating: B+
Reading Level: 8+
