About the Edition

Yulee and her four friends --- Nick, Pedro, Sally and Martin --- are taking a trip to her aunt"s farm to pick apples and make an apple crisp for a potluck harvest dinner. Yum! But first, Aunt Sara gives the friends a tour of the whole farm, where they learn what it means to eat balanced meals, why eating local food matters and all that goes into getting food from farm to table. Who knew there was so much to learn about what we eat? It makes everything taste better!

Award-winning author and illustrator Scot Ritchie uses accessible and entertaining language and familiar characters from his other books to encourage young children to make healthy choices about what they eat. Each stop on the farm tour introduces a basic food group: the field of wheat and oats for grains, the garden for vegetables, the henhouse for protein, the barn for dairy and the orchard for fruit. Ritchie"s cheerful, busy illustrations invite children to look closer at the details. This is a terrific book for a science or health lesson to broaden young children"s understanding of healthy eating and why local food matters. The potluck dinner includes a multicultural group of neighbors and provides opportunities for discussions about community involvement. There is an apple crisp recipe at the end of the story. Also provided are a table of contents and glossary.

The book describes how humans are the only species to cook their food, and it includes a fascinating time line relating when various items common today entered the human diet, artfully arousing curiosity about what we eat every day (for instance, cocoa was introduced in BCE, pizza in 1, CE, and coffee and potatoes in the 16th century).Reviews: See ALL of our book activities for kids! This was a really fun activity for my preschooler and kindergartner. They had no idea how many foods we ate that were seeds! We pulled out lots of nuts and seeds that they knew were seeds, then we started looking at our fruits and vegetables to decide which ones had seeds that we were eating.
