Our Food: A Healthy Serving of Science and Poems
by Grace Lin (Author), Ranida T. McKneally (Author), and Grace Zong (Illustrator)
Booktalk: Cheerful haiku poems and a simple Q&A format make this book a nutritious treat and get kids talking about the science of food, the five food groups, and what a healthy meal looks like with questions like “Why are so many vegetables green?”, “What’s the difference between brown bread and white bread?”, and “Why do beans make you gassy?”
Why do beans make you gassy?
Beans are coated with a type of sugar that your body can’t easily break down. Your body needs help from bacteria, living things so small you need a microscope to see them.
