Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati J.D.
Mouthwatering pastries and cakes invite young readers to explore French cuisine by learning about its climate, history, religion and culture. With simple, direct text and colorful photos, illustrations and maps, children learn how these factors have influenced the foods eaten in France. Frogs legs anyone? Snails? Cow brains? Tongue? What will picky eaters think about these food choices? They might prefer April Fish Day, when children eat chocolate fish and play games. An excellent choice for home and school libraries, the text and illustrations introduce readers to a world different from their own and encourage exploration of new foods. Along the way, children learn quite a bit about the country. This appealing title, which is one in an eight-volume series entitled "A World of Food," contains a glossary, index, several step-by-step recipes, and places to go for further information. Other countries in the series include India, Italy, Mexico and China, Nigeria, Lebanon and the Caribbean. This book was selected for a Library Media Connections Editors Choice 2011 award. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati, J.D.
