Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Shelley Rotner and Julia Pemberton Hellums tell where a pizza's ingredients originate and how to put them together to make your own. After perusing Ms. Rotner's mouth-watering photographs, I doubt readers will be satisfied with anything else for dinner.

PreS-Gr 2In a simple text, Rotner and Hellums explore the various ingredients that make up a pizza, where they come from, and how they are combined. Opening photographs showcase a variety of children munching on pizza. The following pages sequence the necessary ingredients, with each one receiving a two-page spread that shows the food in both its natural and processed form. A recipe for pizza is included at the end. The full-color photos serve their purpose well, tantalizing readers with images of plump, shiny tomatoes; garden fresh basil; and mottled rounds of pepperoni. The book's concept is not a new one. Marjorie Pillar photographed a day in the life of a pizza maker in Pizza Man (HarperCollins, 1990; o.p.), and Stephen Krensky presented the basic information plus historical tidbits in The Pizza Book (Scholastic, 1992). Hold the Anchovies is an interesting supplement to this Dewey locale. Combine it with Pillar's title, a few facts from Krensky's book, and a favorite pizza picture book for a fun-filled story time.Lisa Marie Gangemi, Sousa Elementary School, Port Washington, NY
