By Ann Morris
bread is a very common practice all over the world. That's what makes
this multicultural book so special. All children can relate to its
topic. The book is filled with pictures taken in Israel, United
States, Peru, Ghana, England, Indonesia and many other countries. The
pictures show people eating bread, making brad, carrying bread and selling
bread. What makes this book even better is the index that recaps the
theme in a two-page spread of all the pictures previously shown.
Beside each picture, the caption tells the reader in which country it was
taken and what is happening in the picture. This is an excellent book
to read prior to a bread-making project or before a snack of pretzels!
This is also a good prompter for an interesting discussion of cultures.
