Bread Is a Simple Food: Teaching Children about Cultures

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2011 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 32 pages
Bread comes in different sizes, shapes, colors, and textures. Even so, it's all bread. Little children also come in different sizes, shapes, and colors, but they all belong to the same human race.

Bread is such a simple food, right? That is what many elementary school children think before experiencing the innovative workshop entitled, "Opening the Breadbasket." The workshop was conducted 10 years before the book "Bread is a Simple Food" was written. Through this basic food children can learn a profound lesson about cultures.

This book was written to help children internalize the oneness of the human family.
