    Maybe a trip around the world is a little out of your budget, but you can bring a "taste" of the world into your home! This book by Jamie Aramini takes you to all the continents and exposes you to the native cuisines and authentic dinning customs found there. For example, in Africa you will have a chance to re-create dining experiences from Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, and South Africa. Each country not only has three different recipes provided, but information on the culture, dining traditions, key ingredients, and native words or phrases for you to try and use during the meal. The recipes range in difficulty, but all of them use ingredients that you would find in your local grocery store. This is a great book to incorporate into your geography lessons; as you study different countries you can treat family and friends to an international meal and dress, talk, and dine according to that country's customs. The author also provides reproducible activities that will help get your kids excited about eating their way around the world, including a Food Journal, Food Passport, and websites to check out for more native recipes! This book is going to transform meal time into a fun learning time for all! 112 pgs, spiral-bound, pb. – elise

    Here's a really tasty supplement to any study of the United States! While state studies often include state birds, flowers, capitals and other facts, most don't devote much time to "state foods." This book includes easy-to-follow instructions for preparing a complete meal - main course, side dish, and dessert - typical to one eaten by people of each of the 50 states. When too tempting to pass up, some states also include additional recipes for breakfast foods or snacks. Fun state food facts pepper the pages to keep you busy while the meal is cooking. As they say, "When in Iowa, eat as the Iowans do." - Steph

    Same fast-paced, Dave Stotts-narrated adventures as the above series, but instead of places, this series takes on a tour of the Founding Fathers – er, Founding People (giving Abigail Adams her rightful place as a person of influence in the founding of our country). The first episode examines the Adams family – John, Abigail, and John Quincy; the second a collection of Benjamins – Franklin, Banneker, and Dr. Rush; and the third – without benefit of either a first or last name in common – familiar Americans George Washington and Noah Webster and the not-so-familiar Haym Salomon. Each biographical tour includes family homes, letters/diaries, and accomplishments.

    Aptly titled volume by Workman Publishing (previously Klutz) which encourages all to take the "plunge" into watercolors. Authored and illustrated by Thacher Hurd, noted children's book illustrator, who inspires even the most "undiscovered" talent through humorous instruction, wild colors and disarming art work. The package is likewise designed to spark the latent artist within: the wire-bound book contains 48 pages of watercolor paper, 24 pages of text packed with tips and techniques from the author, and a permanently affixed six-color box of professional quality Reeves watercolors with a #5 watercolor brush. All you need to provide is a glass of water and your (as yet) undiscovered talent.
