"History is Delicious is a delightful book perfect for today's children! Children will gain an understanding of the global community, in which they now live, and be introduced to cuisine and culture from around the world. The beautifully illustrated pages and simple but informative prose will draw children in and make learning about other people, their favorite foods and cultural tradtions fun!" - Mary Beth, educator
