This is a photo-essay about bread in different countries, in picture book format--as such there is not really a plot. Different types of bread and baking are shown, with an emphasis on how bread is good for you. The text is sparse and in a large font, designed for beginning readers, ages 4-5. There

is a 2-page spread at the end that explains each photograph and tells which country it is from; this was, in my opinion, the best part of the book.

I gave this book 4 stars because I don't think it is in the right format for the age group it was written for. It was a paperback book with thin pages. I think because of the content it should have been a board book for babies and toddlers. I think that all age groups could learn from it but ii

needs to be a board book. I had several informational books like this when I was growing up. You could use this book while teaching a unit about bread, or when teaching that people in other countries like things that we like just in a different form!

This little book talks about bread. There aren't very many words, but the few that there are augment a child's vocabulary, yet are easy to understand. The most important part of this book are the pictures. Using pictures of people all over the world eating all kinds of different bread, helps

children to begin to understand the bigger world around them. The book also illustrates how even though some things are the same, they can also be quite different.

This book is all about bread. Even better, it's about bread all over the world! Each picture is from a different country, and they all show people eating bread. The sentence structure is typical for a children's book, especially the sentence that says "skinny bread, fat bread, round flat bread,

bread with a hole, crunchy bread, lunchy bread...and bread to soak up your egg." It's has a rhyme structure some of the time, and that is absolutely perfect for an informational book like this. The actual message of this book is probably that all cultures can be connected by something as simple as bread!

I like this book because of the simplicity of the text and the images used throughout the book. Each page contains only one sentence or begins with a sentence that is then completed on the next page. I think this makes the book an easy read. By starting a sentence on one page and not ending it

until the next page, it engages the reader to keep reading. For example, on page 10 it states, “crunchy bread, lunchy bread…” then on page 11 it completed the sentence with, “and bread to soak up your egg.” Along with the simple text, the book provides pictures throughout the book to give a clear and detailed image of the types of bread that are being described. My favorite part of the book is the very end. At the very end of the book there is an index. The index includes page numbers and descriptions about the types of bread on that page by listing bread from different countries. For example, on page 8 there is a picture and in the index it states, “Indonesia: This American-style sliced white bread is made by a bakery in Surabaya, Indonesia.” This book helps to demonstrate the different traditions with bread that people posses around the world. Each part of the world uses bread for multiple reasons and some are even well known for their products. I think the central message of the book is just to inform readers on the topic of bread and the variations of how it is used around the world.

It would be a good book to have on hand during the Bread Communion at church, or during that whole month. The text is ultra-simple (made for preschoolers) and is primarily comprised of photographs of people (from many cultures) eating many types of bread. I liked how the appendix gives more
