Sharing a Meal

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marcie Flinchum Atkins
Eating is more than just an opportunity for nutritious intake; it is also a time for celebrating with families. Eating breakfast, lunch, dinner at the table, enjoying a picnic, barbequing on the grill, eating fast food, enjoying food at parties, and religious dinners are all highlighted in this book. Each page is illustrated through photographs of real families eating, but also includes children helping to prepare and clean up after a meal. This book does strive to show different cultures eating ethnic foods. Indian Americans are shown eating traditional Indian foods with their hands, Chinese Americans use chopsticks to eat their noodles. The religious meals of both Jewish and Christians are shown at family gatherings. Some pages include discussion questions for the classroom, so that children can connect their own experiences with those that are depicted in the book. The back matter includes activities to try, such as writing a poem about the best meal you ever had. This book would be useful in a preschool or kindergarten classroom or assisting English language learners. It provides a good segue for discussing about how the readers' families eat as well. This book is part of the "My Family and Me" series. Reviewer: Marcie Flinchum Atkins
