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.
