Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
As part of the "Spyglass Books" social studies series, this book focuses on basic foods found around the world and some of their uses. The format of the book loosely covers the basic food groups and also includes a short bit about spices. The text is very basic and written with preschoolers and beginning readers in mind. Each page of information is accompanied by a full color, full page photograph on the opposing page. Also included is a glossary, a list of more books to read, and web site references to enhance further study. This series would be best in a preschool, kindergarten, or library setting. 2003, Compass Point Books, Ages 3 to 5.

K-Gr 2-Each spread in these beginning readers discusses one idea in two or three sentences. Customs looks at the traditions of people when they "Meet and Greet," celebrate, or make music. Eat describes some basic foods consumed around the world. Dressed gives students an introduction to (mostly traditional) clothing worn in different cultures and includes a hat-making activity. One or two line "Did You Know?" boxes (called "Extra Helping" in Eat) offer side notes explaining why some people wear black at funerals, some wear it at weddings, or other cultural differences in traditions, foods, and dress. Each of the nine spreads per book includes one small and one full-page color photo depicting people of various ages, ethnicities, and cultures. Unfortunately, a few pictures are blurry and some lack interest. In addition, not all the cultures depicted are identified. The layouts are colorful and incorporate plenty of white space; in Dressed, the borders resemble pieces of fabrics stitched together. The material presented in all the titles is extremely basic but the books may interest new readers who enjoy nonfiction.-Shauna Yusko, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
