**Let me beging with full disclosure: The author of this book is my mother (Here after referred to as "Gracie"), so assume I write these words with both pride and heavy bias.

Eat it! Food Adventures is as much a tool for family engagement as it is a good read and an instructive cook book for young learners.

Gracie has done a masterful job weaving together history, narrative, and the culinary arts in a way that will surely build a lifelong love of cooking in any young reader (and maybe even a paren

Having read this marvelous book, I'm already hungry for more. Eat It! artfully weaves together history, sociology, cookery and an intriguing story of adventure. Those who appreciate excellent illustration will love paging through the colorful plates.

Grown-ups and younger people can learn together over this series while reconnecting in the kitchen, and the go-to nature of these time-tested recipes will make this a treasured piece of one's personal book collection. I hope this can also become par

Eat It! Food Adventures is a home run in every way! A beautifully written and illustrated adventure story with delicious complimentary recipes and a rich food history section that children and adults will love! I cook with children on a regular basis using this book, we prepare dishes from the recipe section and while we are waiting for our recipe to finish baking or cooking, we read a chapter from the adventure story. if you have kids of your own, this book is a must for the kitchen. What a gre ...more

What an exciting culinary journey! I am always looking for new ways to get my children excited about creating their own healthy meals and this book does just that. We read our way through the adventure story at night and create yummy snacks and meals after school and on the weekends. My children not only enjoy learning about how a boy their age lived long ago, but also find it so interesting to learn about food from across the world. This is a MUST-READ for adults and kids!

This book was really a lot of fun. The artwork was great and the recipes were easy to follow and different. My kids enjoyed reading the story together and have picked out which recipes we want to try first. I wish that the story hadn't ended so abruptly, but it was a good start to an epic adventure. I received this book as part of a goodreads giveaway.
