“Most people don't realize how important librarians are. I ran across a book recently which suggested that the peace and prosperity of a culture was solely related to how many librarians it contained. Possibly a slight overstatement. But a culture that doesn't value its librarians doesn't value ideas and without ideas, well, where are we?”

Every Meal Has A Story To Tell You

The World In Your Lunchbox
By Claire Eamer

Claire Eamer’s diary style book takes a look at a hypothetical week of school lunches and follows each entry with historical facts about the contents of each lunch.  The book is fun and well-illustrated and would well paired with The Omnivore’s Dilemma for Kids.  Teachers in the middle school grades will find this book an excellent resource for starting off research projects in science or history class by using the book as an example.
