Who Wants Pizza?
From 9 to 13 | 64 pages
Often, food is something that kids take for granted. For many, it simply shows up for them every day — thanks to their parents. But there is so much to know and understand about food. Why do we need to eat? Where does our food come from? Is there enough food for everyone?
Award-winning author Jan Thornhill answers all these questions and more in Who Wants Pizza? Using one of the most common foods that kids eat — pizza — as a jumping off point, and, using a bold, graphic approach, Thornhill take an extraordinary and comprehensive look at some of the following topics: Why we eat and why we eat what we eat, how we moved from eating the raw flesh of animals to becoming sophisticated consumers of food, how food is produced for an ever-growing population, and more.
It may seem like a lot to swallow, but the text is delivered in bite-sized bursts and complemented by tons of interesting facts, photos, and illustrations to ensure kids are captivated by the information. Plus, no book about food would be complete without touching on things like burbling stomachs and human waste — the gross stuff that kids love to learn about. Comprehensive, eye-opening, engaging, and fun, Who Wants Pizza? will be a book that kids will want to digest again and again — figuratively, of course.
