    1. This informational text was very interesting to read. Each letter of the alphabet is assigned to a food that starts with that same letter. Each page has one or two letters along with photographs and information about the food, how and where it is used, etc. The photographs from around the world with people and food from around the world are incredible! I would love for my students to see these photographs and to see the cultures and ways of life shown in them. I imagine using the jigsaw activity [...]

    2. Beautiful photographs, lots of text for a 3 year old but very informative, global, and diverse. One example: K is for kitchen includes photos and descriptions of kitchens from those with running water and electricity to those with solely an open fire. S is for spices, with a photo of a Moroccan spice market.My only bone to pick is that, as a vegetarian, I am surprised that legumes (in one form or another) don't make it on the list. I may have missed it 'within' one of the letters but there was n [...]

    3. In World Food Alphabet, Chris Caldicott uses his camera lens to give us a window to the people and food of world. It is a wonderful trip! You might be inspired to include some enrichment activities, such as locating the places the author documents on a world map as you read along, serve some snacks made from some of the featured foods, or have your children or students create their own world food alphabet handmade book.

    4. A photographic picture book with, usually, one photo per page, often covering half the page or more. Colorful, high-quality images from around the world show people displaying, selling, enjoying, growing and measuring foods. Lots of kids are included in the pictures.Text is too wordy to make the book a good read-aloud, but could be used if the reader summarizes content, or uses only parts of the book. Better for one-on-one. No storyline.Informational content: Each page's text offers information [...]

    5. Genre: Alphabet Copyright: 2012This was a unique book that goes through the alphabet in a world food way. Students will learn about different foods grown and eaten around all the continents. Not all the letters though are about food. Some are about the way people from other countries get their food. This would be a good book to show kids that not every child around the world eats the same things we do.

    6. This is a great introduction to cultures around the world especially through food. I was caught up more in the pictures than the informational text. The most creative part was finding 'food' words for q, u, and x.

    7. Food and travel. A great way to open up the mind of a child to the great big world. We enjoyed reading this. The descriptions are lengthy, so you'll want to make sure your child has the attention-span to make it through the book. Or just do a few letters at a time.

    8. the depth of information was a little sporadic, but the photos were vibrant and intriguing. a good introduction to what and how people eat around the world, and had a lot of info about how people harvest/gather different types of food.
