How Did That Get in My Lunchbox?
The Story of Food

author: Chris Butterworth
illustrator: Lucia Gaggiotti

series name:
Exploring the Everyday

One of the best parts of a young child’s day is opening a lunchbox and diving in. But how did that delicious food get there? From planting wheat to mixing dough, climbing trees to machine-squeezing fruit, picking cocoa pods to stirring a vat of melted bliss, here is a clear, engaging look at the steps involved in producing some common foods. Health tips and a peek at basic food groups complete the menu.
Back matter includes an index.
