The World in Your Lunch Box: The Wacky History and Weird Science of Everyday Foods, by Claire Eamer


What a clever way of teaching kids a little more about the history of their food! It's set up like a week-long food journal, with each day exploring the history of a few lunch time ingredients. I hope they make ten sequels to this book to cover more food facts! (The World on Your Dinner Plate, The World in Your Picnic Basket, etc.)
