This was a very interesting book of trivia about food. I had never even thought of some of these questions myself, but my grandkids sure have so this book was a hit with them as we went through it page by page. The graphics were great and the explanations were very easy to understand. I found myself thinking that this would be a great book for teachers or homeschoolers. I highly recommend it.
