Organized in the form of a daily Monday through Sunday lunch diary, the author provides extensive historical background along with stories... Very highly recommended for upper elementary through junior high; appropriate for multicultural curriculum and a wide range of classroom settings.--Ellen R.

This quirky offering reads like a diary of school lunches. Punctuated by silly jokes and colorful artwork, the book presents information on the historical implications of certain foods and the science behind what we eat.... Elevating the mundane into the realm of fascinating science and pop history, this book also offers a successful formula for encouraging students to enjoy nonfiction texts and to think a bit every time they open their lunch boxes.--Erin Anderson"Booklist" (07/01/2012)
It's . . . interesting just how many foods are found in a week's worth of food, and how much history can be learned, and how many cultures are represented. The book provides a veritable fridge-load of trivia that so delights young readers.
