Let's Eat: What Children Eat Around the World
"I don't know about you, but I've always been really curious about what other people eat. Being nosy is how I've got some of my best ideas as a chef-and discovered some of my favorite things to eat." -From the Introduction to Let's Eat by Jamie Oliver, The Naked Chef
A beautifully photographed introduction to the
way children from around the world eat
What we eat says a lot about who we are and where we come from. The five children in this book live in very different countries, and they each have their own ideas about what tastes good. But they have lots in common, too: they all go food shopping and help with the cooking, share mealtimes with their families, eat special foods to celebrate, and have things they love to eat and things they definitely don't.
Endorsed by Jamie Oliver, The Naked Chef, this vibrant companion book to Wake Up, World! is a friendly and fascinating introduction to the way people eat and live around the world.

Let's Eat!Mar 27, 2006
This book is great to use in any multi-cultural lesson and/or classroom. It explores the lives of 5 children around the world (South Africa, Mexico, Thailand, France and India)and the food they eat. This book includes recipes, a food glossary and even special food traditions each culture has. Contains many colorful pictures and would be great to use with both young and old!

A colorful comparison of food and culturesFeb 13, 2005
By Midwest Book Review
Five children presented in Beatrice Hollyer's Let's Eat! represent very different countries and cultures, each with their own ideas about what tastes good. Cultural differences and similarities in cooking and foods are explored in chapters which not only cover dishes themselves, but shopping and mealtime preparations and rituals intrinsic to each country. South African, Mexico, Thailand, France, and India are the countries profiled in a colorful comparison of food and cultures.

take a trip around the worldNov 19, 2004
By Melissa Sack
In this book we meet five children from various countries in the world. They walk us through a day in their lives. The focus is mainly on the foods they enjoy with their families. Also included in the book are 5 recipes so that you can sample the foods the children enjoy.
The full color photos of the children from each country help to bring the story to life.
This book is a good start to introduce culture and geography. The most important theme in the book is that people are the same all all over the world! Everybody Eats!!! I highly recommend it!
Good early childhood book in cultural studies and geographyMar 21, 2011
By Assoc For Natural Psych
"world of nature"
One of a number of books that teach young children lessons in geography, foreign cultures, helping to promote an way of thinking that fosters mutual respect and harmony. Five countries are featured, including Morocco and India. It is a good early childhood book, a molding book, that is, it molds children's thinking in a positive direction. Worth it for the early childhood, pre-K to 2nd Grade classroom or home. Good library book.
