Yum! MmMm! Que Rico! America's Sproutings, by Pat Mora

Illus. by Rafael Lopez

A haiku and an informational paragraph introduce several foods native to the Americas including chocolate, potatoes, corn, and papaya. Influenced by Mexican murals, the illustrations have a bright and distinctively Southwestern feel. This would be a fun accompaniment to geography or nutrition units.

Grades 1-4

Second. Mora provides a unique combination of haiku and information re. the native foods of the Americas. Delicious illustrations fill the pages.
Lots of great possibilities for using this book across the curriculum.
