Let's Eat: What Children Eat Around the World Reviews

    This book is very good to read in a classroom of different cultures. It goes through and shows what some people eat around the world. This book, I think, would be better used in an older classroom. For an activity you could make one of the recipients in the book to try in the classroom. You could also look up other cultures and what they eat as a class.

    Again, I picked this book with the Grade 3 student in mind and their current unit of inquiry into the relationship between food and culture. This book, with an introduction by Jamie Oliver, provides the culinary habits of five children, from France, Mexico, South Africa, India and Thailand respectively. As well as informing the reader about the week day eating habits of the children, insights are given into how weekend foods differ, and there is a special occassion shared in each culture, including a birthday picnic, a day with dad, and a wedding. The photographic images are excellent and made my mouth water! This book would work equally well as a read aloud to the whole class and a source of information for individual research.

    Grades 2-5Each chapter follows the child through a typical day, introduces the family, and features a special excursion or celebration. The final section includes a recipe related to each child's story and a glossary of food terms. Clear and often beautiful, the many color photos of the children, their communities, and their foods bring each culture into focus. In conjunction with the clearly written text, the pictures offer children a better understanding of differences and similarities among people around the world."I would use this chapter by chapter while teaching social studies. We might also prepare a meal from each chapter to share in our classroom.This book follows 5 children in 5 different countries. "

    This book would be very useful in all grades. The information provided is accurate and written for all ages. The text is accented by real pictures of children and food that helps the reader to visualize what is described. This book follows 5 children from around the world and provides the reader with background information on each of them. It then describes what each child eats and what they do at celebrations.

    “Explores what five children living in South Africa, Mexico, Thailand, France, and India eat at mealtime with their families, how their families obtain and prepare food, what kinds of food may be eaten at celebrations, and what their favorite food is. Includes recipes.” Fascinating! And great pictures.

    Children from France, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand, and India share their favorite foods. There are lots of photographs of how the children get their food, such as markets or collecting it, and food preparation. This book is good for a picture walk or for sharing excerpts with younger children. Recipes are included.

    A cute look at 5 different kids from around the world and what they like to eat, as well as where they get their food. Each child is featured in two days, a normal day and a special day. There is also a recipe in the back for each child.

    A very interesting book to give children some perspective on the different eating habits around the world. A good book to read with your child and discuss. The only fault is the inclusion of the "special days" which seems forced and sometimes totally off topic.

    I enjoy these glimpses of how children around the world live. I think they do a good job demonstrating how different things are. I hope to use something like this in a summer reading program on how and what kids eat around the world.

    Really interesting and well-done book featuring a child from five different countries and what they eat. The book includes recipes, lots of photos, children's roles, and special occasions.
