How Did That Get In My Lunchbox?: The Story of Food
by Chris Butterworth (Author) and Lucia Gaggiotti (Illustrator)

Booktalk: The best part of a young child’s day is often opening a lunchbox and diving in. But how did all that delicious food get there? Who made the bread for the sandwich? What about the cheese inside? Who plucked the fruit? And where did the chocolate in that cookie get its start?

Snippet:

Chocolate starts off as a bean–well, lots of beans, which grow in pods an a cocoa tree.

Booktalk: Middle school can be tough. Physical and emotional changes may cause you to feel unsure of yourself. Relationships can get complicated. And more to do at school might require major adjustments. The middle school years can begin to seems like one long roller coaster ride.
