Food Matters – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
Although all people need to eat, not all of us tend to think about where our food comes from and what goes into producing it. Providing pros and cons related to the issues, this series outlines ways in which people can become well-informed, responsible, and safe food consumers. Each book begins with a chapter that addresses readers in the second person, making the topic relevant to the audience. Appealing captioned color photos, charts, and sidebars provide additional information that supplements the main text. A “What’s the Big Idea?” feature urges students to do a close reading and answer text-based questions, and a “Consider Your Audience” feature prompts them to adapt text and write a blog post. A well-rounded, engaging series.
