Reviews

Reader-directed prose and cheerfully retro artwork...an accessible primer for families looking to foster healthy habits
--Publisher's Weekly

Breezily presenting highlights without getting mired in details...Mouth-watering descriptions could almost stand alone...Retro cartoon illustrations are equally informative and appetite-whetting
--Horn Book

Children who haven't given the subject further thought will find this sunny, high-energy account of food production and distribution an appetizing eye-opener.
--Booklist

A great springboard to units on food and nutrition.
--School Library Journal

Results of reading this book include a greater understanding of the farm-to-table methodology as well as hunger pangs.
--Library Media Connection

A great book that unpeels a whole new world of understanding for kids who want to know more about their food. The book provides kids step-by-step illustrations about how farmers and others do their part to get food from the farm to their lunchboxes.
--Bob Stallman, President, American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture

Using kitschy illustrations, this book traces how carrots, cookies, and other kid-fave fare travels from the farm to school.
