Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0778702383, Library Binding)

A celebration of cultural differences, these beautifully illustrated cultural books give young readers a fascinating look at the music, clothes, dance, food, and homes of other people around the world. By comparing their own way of life with other children around the world, young readers will discover that different does not necessarily mean better or worse in our increasingly multicultural world. Our lifestyles often influence what and how we eat. This fascinating new book examines how food is grown, prepared, and appreciated by different cultures around the world. Children will be interested to learn why certain foods are more popular in certain parts of the world and why we eat the foods we do. Topics include: -- how food was produced and prepared throughout history -- how food gets from the farm to the table -- "fast" and "slow" foods -- taste -- an individual preference -- food festivals around the world -- offering food to the gods -- dangers of disease and genetic modification -- water and stimulating drinks
