Silver Birch Review: The World in your Lunch Box

The world in your lunch box book cover

Hot dogs used to contain floor sweepings?  Not all nuts are nuts?  Popcorn has existed for over 3000 years?

If you are interested in finding out all kinds of weird, wacky, and sometimes just plain gross facts about the history and science of food, then check out The World in your Lunch Box by Claire Eamer.  Not only will you learn a lot about the food you eat every day, but you may get a good laugh from the food jokes spread throughout the book.
