Rude Dude’s Book of Food: Stories Behind Some of the Crazy-Cool Stuff We Eat by Tim J. Myers
In the age of Dr. Oz and the Chew, when it seems Americans are starting to actually think about what they eat, I have at last found a book about food that is informative, interesting, and fun to read. Tim J. Myers has created a book that will keep your eye moving with the illustrations he created and will keep your mind focused and curious through the content and construction as you ponder what this creative writer will say or surprise you with next. Using poems, personal and historical anecdotes along with inserted notes on food superstitions, surprising foods of the world, lesson ideas for teachers (with standards and benchmarks identified), and quizzes, Myers will make you laugh and think about the food we eat. You can view and order the book on Amazon HERE:
