Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

""Put a song in your heart and put joy in your teaching." The emphasis here is on positive, enjoyable encounters with food in every area of development Fab Food is well-organized and thorough; early childhood teachers will appreciate the adaptations for special needs kids, home activities, the variety of things to teach and do within each activity, the interesting "Did you know?" facts, and the reproducibles in the back. Each set of activities has an accompanying song on the CD which is included. Great format and easy to use; all in all, a good early childhood classroom resource." - Field Guide to Parenting, August 2008
