I am telling you about:
Rude Dude's Book of Food
by: Tim J. Myers
Familius LLC 2014
I have learned two things:
Kids love facts.
Kids love learning facts written about in a fun way.
Tim Myer's book is all about facts written in a fun way. It has eight chapters about the crazy-cool stuff we eat. Food is fascinating when told about by the Rude Dude. Most everyone loves chocolate - right? But, I bet they didn't know about chocolate's trip down history. Also, learn all about hamburgers and one smart cookie. That's not chocolate chip cookies, but fortune cookies. And, we learn that awesome pizza has a short history in America. and you wouldn't believe the different toppings some people put on this favorite snack bar food.
Well, you get the idea. This book is all about foods kids love and it is written in a fun, and sometimes wacky, way. For all the teachers out there, in addition to learning a lot of neat facts about food, there are also lesson ideas and info on how the book meets common core standards.
So, if you know someone who wants to learn good, fun and weird facts about some of their favorite foods, this is the book for them.
