Book Review: A World of Food

A World of Food

ISBN 978-09-3-1

Author: Carl Warner

May 2012- Abrams Books for Young Readers.

The author is a London photographer who is well known for his miniature landscapes. What is special about these landscapes is that they are made entirely from edible ingredients.

In this book, A World of Food, Discover Magical Lands Made of Things You Can Eat, Warner constructs each landscape in one color. Not only is this a fun color learning book for young readers, older readers will enjoy the playful verse which accompanies each image. There are many foods used in each photo landscape making it a fun activity for kids to identify each one. ( There are answers in the back of the book)

This fun picture book can be read over and over, making it an adventure in discovering what foods were missed with the first read through with your child. The talent of the author/artist is inspiring for those interested in the arts and the intricate construction of each landscape is amazing.
