Excellent book for Social studies within my classroom. I teach 5th graders and this book was an excellent resource for students to become globally aware of where food comes from. My students were unaware of how 'easy' it is to get food and yet, this book gave them a whole new perspective! Well written and the visual illustrations and photographs help cement the concept into their long term memory! An excellent book for a center!
