Children's Literature - Meredith KigerOne of five in the "Food Zone" series, this edition, using a variety of interesting graphics and layout, discusses the meat and fish group of foods. Overall, it "describes the growing cycle, how it makes it to your table and why it is important nutritionally." A colorful map of the world illustrates where various meat and fish products predominate. Remaining pages use photos, illustrations, and text in a scrapbook-like layout to define meat and fish products, the variety of way they are eaten in different cultures, and the importance of protein nutritionally. Nuts are later included without explanation. Simple recipes for shrimp cocktail, tuna melt, paella, and fishsticks are included throughout. No discussion of product production as far as free range or limiting the amount of meat eaten for health reasons is included. A glossary, index, and notes for parents and teachers concludes the book.
