Resource: Children's Books about Food

The blog Obama Foodorama follows current efforts in food and agriculture policy in Washington.

A recent post, of interest to teachers, is entitled "'Where the Wild Things Are' Joins Another Foodcentric Children's Book on the Official Obama Reading List"

In the post, the blogger highlights children's books that reference food. It includes descriptions of
  • Duck for President
  • The Curious Garden
  • If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
  • Six-Dinner Sid
  • Stone Soup
  • Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
  • The Lorax
  • The Giving Tree
  • I'm Gonna Like Me

Each of these stories offers important lessons about food, farming, gardening, etc. and would be a great resource or story to read to your class.
