Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Alison Johansen
Food safety is important for many reasons. Lee offers a simple, first look at how to keep things clean with this first book in her “Staying Safe” series. Nine short, easy-to-read sections define key words and show how to stay safe from harmful bacteria that make people sick. First, bacteria are everywhere, especially on the turkey sandwich that was left out. Second, wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds to rid hands of germs, bacteria and viruses, which cause disease. Third, bacteria and viruses may be on anything from utensils and dishes to books in backpacks. Keep it clean! Fourth, keep foods separate so things like raw meat do not spread bacteria to other foods. Fifth, cook food at the right temperature to kill off harmful bacteria. Sixth, refrigerate food to slow down the growth of bacteria. Eat leftovers within four days! Seventh, use freezers to slow bacteria growth. Eighth, if there is mold on food or it is past its expiration date, throw it away. Finally, Lee explains that farmers, government officials and stores work together to make sure food is safe. Lee includes a table of contents, “hands on” reading about how bacteria grow, a glossary, Internet sites, bibliographical references and an index. With food allergies on the rise, I would have liked to see a section on how to keep things clean to avoid cross-contamination, but perhaps that is another book for her series. Reviewer: Alison Johansen; Ages 4 up.

Meet the Author

Sally Lee is the author of numerous nonfiction books for readers from kindergarten through high school. Her interest in children’s literature began at the University of Missouri where she received her degree in education. Her years of teaching gave her desire to help children learn.
When she left the classroom to raise her own son and daughter, writing nonfiction became a way to continue educating children. Her favorite part of writing nonfiction is doing research. It reminds her of a treasure hunt, especially when it uncovers off-beat facts that nobody else knows. It also satisfies her own curiosity about the world. Sally and her husband live in Dallas, Texas, with their children and grandchildren nearby.
