What a fantastic children's book! Part of a series of children's books about food, it is a large and colorful hardcover with delightful illustrations filled with fascinating information and a hands on DIY project, too! I learned new things, too.

The authors give us a snapshot of the life of our protagonist, Sandor Katz, and what drew him from his life in New York City to an off the grid community lifestyle in the rural depths of Middle Tennessee. That alone is a fascinating life story. But along with the change in geography came a change in lifestyle, as Sandor was drawn to holisitic, natural foods; foods from the earth, not processed foods. While gardening the he discovered a way to preserve his produce, instead of having to waste the overabundance that ripened at the same time. He learned the art of fermentation, of making sauerkraut and kim chi; of pickling things. And he came up with his own, very tasty twist on kim chi which he dubbed kraut chi, sauerkraut and kim chi preparation techniques mixed together! This caught on and the Sandor then started selling this product in markets and teaching others how to prepare it. In the book, he gives simple instructions so that children, with the help of a grown up, can prepare some too!

Easy to read and comprehend and sure to hold your child's interest, and I imagine, yours too!

Eva and her Green Garden Farm has grown into a resource and business in her area. This simple book shows how she began by enjoying home grown produce and learned more and more and grew many more tasty garden herbs. Fantastic reading for Farm to Table enthusiasts (like me!).
The illustrations by Christy Hale are clear, imaginative, colorful, and informative.
Well suited for reading WITH someone of any age including ESL, and great for gifting to everyone, but especially to a school or your local public library.
I requested and received a free temporary e-book on Adobe Digital Editions from Readers to Eaters via NetGalley. Thank you!

This book is for primary level (read aloud) and intermediate level students. This book is about the story of Bentley who had a fascination with snow. He realized they were all different and wanted to share his fascination with others. This is a true story about his life.

I love a woodcut illustration, winter scenes especially lend themselves to a beautiful woodcut. I also enjoyed a story of a regular farmer pursuing his snowflake passion without being school educated. It is a simple book, and tells a sweet story that is historically accurate. I do wish it had more of the actual snowflake pictures.
