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?”

Snippet:
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.

It’s STEM Friday! (STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
