What food did our ancestors eat? What is mad cow disease? And where did tomatoes first come from? These are just some of the topics covered in this imaginative and fun book all about food.
French author Michéle Mira Pons has created a perfect all-round information book. Set out in easy-to-read chapters, each devoted to a different topic, it contains short snappy paragraphs which are broken up by the colourful comical illustrations by Marion Puech and amusing, but informative captions underneath.
All About Food covers the energy in food, how taste works and the history of food. It explains how food is like fuel and necessary to the body; what happens inside the human body when we eat and how food and water can keep us healthy. At the back of the book there are even some recipes along with a food quiz, mini dictionary and useful websites.
The layout and comic-style approach will appeal to children and help them to learn about a serious subject in a fun way. The simple and straightforward text together with the humorous illustrations is key to helping children understand the concepts. This is a book that will interest adults and well as children.
