    DESCRIPTION Meredith Sayles Hughes
    No one can live without food, but what you eat is a personal decision. Today many people are examining nutritional advice and choosing to eat more vegetables and fruits and less meat. But is all meat bad for you? What does the science say?

    People also make food choices for ethical and religious reasons. Some vegetarians and vegans avoid meat because they believe killing animals is wrong. Other people shun meat from factory farms. Recently, more people are seeking out foods grown locally and organically.

    What do you choose to eat and why? This book will help you make decisions to support your values.


    Images of the Interactive Book in Action
     
    Lerner Interactive Books introduce students to knowledge areas in core grade-level curriculum in an engaging format. With titles that span curriculum themes from pre-K - 5th grade, Lerner Interactive Books give readers a digital option for reading that allows them to read, hear, and interact in a way that will engage and motivate them to read more and more often. It's a fast path to deepening students' love of reading and learning.
             
    From the opening page, audio and visual cues and easy-to-use tools help guide your students through the story. As the story begins, words are highlighted while they're read aloud. This type of word distinction better supports letter and word recognition skills, and keeps kids focused on the structure of how to read.

    Other Reviews
    School Library Journal
    "[T]his is a timely, student-friendly primer on the historical, nutritional, and ethical impacts of what and how humans eat. . . . This solid introduction to where food comes from and the consequences of its consumption and production is a worthy addition."—School Library Journal
    Kirkus Reviews
    "Hughes is careful not to paint black-and-white pictures of any stance on food or make strident arguments for eating one type of food over another. . . . Good food for thought that won't leave readers feeling stuffed."—Kirkus Reviews
