This classy, savvy board board is both creative and educational. Filled full of colourful, eye-popping photos and easy to understand text, this book is sure to be a hit with the young pizza-lovers in your family. Where did pizza originate? What makes it a unique food? Where in the world is it eaten? Is it a popular food? (Americans eat 350 slices of it every second). Wow! Who knew? How did it get to my country and my table? (This concept brings the modern world into focus for your child). What are the special ingredients you need to make the perfect pizza? These and many other mind-boggling questions are answered in the book in a fun and enlightening way. Pizza is eaten by both the rich and the poor and after you read this book to your child she will not only have a greater understanding of this simple but complex food but have you on your phone ordering one up for the whole family to enjoy together ... (of course something you would do only after you read the book right?). I highly recommend this book. Delizioso! Bon appétit! Gozar de! and in English....Yum!!
