it was amazing
bookshelves: children-s
Read in November, 2007

A fascinating, whirlwind tour across time, space and cultures that shows how a humble rock, salt, has shaped civilizations, influenced our eating habits, caused revolutions and led to scientific innovation.
• Potential Use: Great potential for linking across disciplines, notably science and history.
• Child Appeal: Engrossing story will appeal to children interested in food, science, history and/or language. Carefully organized illustrations and side bars invite the reader to explore and easily understand the great importance of a condiment that they might never consciously consider otherwise.
