The book Bread Bread Bread is a book that informs students of different types of bread in the world. Bread Bread Bread is used as another method of teaching and displaying diversity amongst people. The simple repetition of rhyming words can help build fluency with students. I would have the story in my classroom library for students to practice reading on their own.

BREAD, BREAD, BREAD is a touching picture of the world and how we are all connected, even if we look, dress and cook differently. Author Ann Morris’s simple text about breads cooked and eaten around the world is supported by Ken Heyman’s realistic, modern photography of people in the everyday acts of shopping, cooking and breaking bread. Young listeners/readers are drawn in by the photos of diverse urban and rural settings and people that at once introduce them to different worlds and remind you ...more

This book was one of my favorite books to read and I think it would be an excellent book for children as well. It contains accurate pictures that display photos of people from around the world with their different types of bread. It gives children a chance to have a glimpse at what it is like to live in other parts of the world by looking at their food, specifically bread. It is so important that children understand that everyone is different and to acknowledge our differences without any bias. ...more

This informational text shares the diversity and abundance of bread all around the world. The photographs provide as much, or more, information than the words on the page. It is hard to find informational books for preschool and primary level students that contain photographs -- so I see Bread, Bread, Bread as an assit to any preK or primary classroom.

There are many instructional uses for this text. I might introduce it with some sort of essential question, such as, "How are people all over the

Text Set Book #1

This timeless text is great for introducing the text set on bread. It is filled with colorful photographs of people and families making bread, all around the world. The text is accessible to students, as it is not heavy with words, but rather provides students with a glance into other communities and the role of bread around the world. This book can be paired with a KWL chart, to begin the text set. Students can tell about what they know about bread, their experiences with bread,

Even though some of the pictures might be a bit dated, since this book was published in 1993, I enjoyed Bread, Bread, Bread, especially the bread index at the back that gives a little bit of information about the different types of bread from around the world. Although I'm sometimes wary of books that try to teach diversity solely by sameness, I didn't mind Bread, Bread, Bread because it showed that, not only are people around the world similar (since people from all around the world eat bread), ...more

This book Bread Bread Bread by Ann Morris is about a book of breads from all over the world. It is interesting to learn about what other bread culturals eat. Children really enjoy this book because they like to look at the illustrations and talk about the bread they experience eating at home. After reading it to my students some said they want to try baking bread for a Food Experience at school. I displayed the book out in the dramatic play area and some children looked at the book pretending to ...more

Bread Bread Bread is a great story that teaches children how people around the world use bread. It is neat because if shows how we all have something in common and our world is commonly knitted together with bread. It also shows that everyone is different and even though we like the same thing it is used differently. This is a good book for teaching children how to appreciate and understand different cultures. It is also a good book for teaching about similarities and differences.

I really enjoyed this very simple book. It shows photographs that have a common theme, bread. Many cultures have bread as one of their staple items to eat. This story gives examples of the types of breads that exist in different countries. There are pictures of people enjoying different types of bread. This is a great book to use for Social Studies. There are many topics that can be discussed using this book.

I am a lover of bread, so I really enjoyed seeing the different varieties of bread that are enjoyed around the world. Although this book is about bread, it also shows different types of people and places that exists around the world. It's a great book to use in your classroom when you're teaching about different cultures. It's also really nice for students to see books in the classroom that reflect and represent cultures that are familiar their own.

I loved this book. It first caught my attention because of the title. I love bread! It is interesting to hear about all the different food that is eaten all around the world. The pictures are real which it super cool! In the back it shows where all the bread in the pictures are from. They literally all over the world to get the pictures. They go from places like the United States to Israel and Greece. Really great!

This book has a good sense of culture to it and does it in a way that can make it applicable to children. The whole book is about bread in different countries and cultures and how they make it and eat it. It is not a very exciting book to read but can be educational especially if you are ever teaching about bread or cultures.

It would be a good book to have on hand during the Bread Communion at church, or during that whole month. The text is ultra-simple (made for preschoolers) and is primarily comprised of photographs of people (from many cultures) eating many types of bread. I liked how the appendix gives more information about each photo and the type of bread featured.

The diversity in this book is something that can't be described in works, it is amazing. I feel like there are so many vocab words that you could pull out. I would use this book when learning about different cultures around the world
I love Ann Morris' non-fiction. Like "Hats, Hats, Hats" and "Shoes, Shoes, Shoes", this picture book filled with great photos shows how people all around the world are so much alike. Great to share this one and bake bread with little ones.

I think this is a very good book. It taught me how bread is so multi culture. I would have this book for so many different reasons.

I would keep this book for multi culture purposes. This is great for Dramatic play. I would also have this book in the science area.

This book has great photographs from too many countries to list, but some include Peru, Ghana, England, Indonesia, France, Portugal, and Greece. Each photo shows how people aroudn the world eat bread. A good kindergarten reader can read this book by herself or it is great for a readaloud.

The book has an index showing the different pictures and what countries they come from. Great to teach multi-culturalism and where different breads come from.
This is a book about how bread is made all around the world. Great story to share with your students when talking about what people eat around the world and the differences.
