Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-4-- Turner has done a nice job of introducing four international foods. The color photographs, taken around the world, are well-captioned, and the color diagrams are clear. Unfamiliar or important words are shown in boldface and appear in a glossary. Bread discusses the early history of bread, the various grains used, and the different types of bread and their uses. Eggs begins with the various kinds of eggs people use, followed by a section on the egg in history, a description of the parts of an egg, and a discussion of its food value. Commercial production, decorating, and beliefs about eggs are also discussed. The introduction to Milk mentions several milk-producing animals. The main focus is on the dairy cow, milk production, pasteurization, and milk products. Potatoes follows the same format. Each title includes a section of easy, illustrated recipes. While not as exhaustive as other titles, these are adequate for their intended audience. --Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
