really liked it
bookshelves: children-s-nonfiction

I knew that salt was important and that words like "salary" came from salt, but now I have a logical way to explain to my students salt's importance throughout history. Full of scientific and historical information presented with interesting text and playful illustrations. A great nonfiction read aloud choice!
