    Buy the whole series!! I used them for my agricultural summer camp and the kids LOVED them!!! They didn’t even know they were learning!

    Fun for kids, families and a great way to celebrate food!
    This book brings joy! This book provides smart activities for kids – and really, all readers – to learn about food and how to feel empowered in the kitchen. There are ways for readers to journal and track their lessons and experiences, and to think of food as a great adventure. From learning about the parts of an egg, to making butter, to preserving foods, to understanding the role of sweets – this book makes food fun! While activities are recommended for kids ages 8-12, I’m excited to bring these to my Daisy Girl Scout troop. There are many complementary lessons about nutrition, gardening and science – perfect for any age, especially littles!

    Your child will want to cook with this book!
    My daughter is absolutely in love with this book. From the science facts to the history of different foods and recipes she is hooked! The recipes are very kid friendly and delicious! The author, Amber Stott, is a champion on behalf of making kids more knowledgeable about their food and food choices when it comes to what they eat. With this book she has created a very powerful and fun tool to help in that mission. If you want your child to learn more about their food and how to cook food then this book is a must have. Bon appetite!

  4. Christopher J. Thaiss

    Perfect for young gardeners and cooks
    This fun, informative book will be going to my 12 and 11 year-old grandchildren soon. The descriptions of the many different foods and food traditions are clear, and the colorful drawings will keep kids (and their parents!) excited and yearning for more. The author is the director of a successful food literacy program that helps kids and adults become self-reliant for food and nutrition. and that helps provide food and education about it to folks in food-challenged communities.

    Food Journey Around the World – For Young Explorers and Scientists
    Boost the scientific curiosity, confidence, and adventurous spirit of your child or grandchild with this book. It’s a “right-sized” book for its target audience – ages 8 to 12. The history of foods and food preparation tools/methods is blended smoothly with hands-on activities sure to engage youth. The book invites active participation while guiding basic, sound scientific practices. Plenty of fun and tasting opportunities included! Children of many cultural backgrounds will find food history that is relatable.
