Gr 3-5--Though delectable fare graces all of the covers, these books mainly explain the customs influencing the region or country's cuisine. Each chapter spread provides information about food history, staple ingredients and how they differ by region, popular meals, and native crops opposite full-color photos. Captions and fact boxes labeled "Another Bite" provide additional information. There is a single recipe per book of food particular to the cuisine, for example chapati in India and homemade pasta in Italy, which will enhance country reports or projects.--Joanna K.
