Let’s Make Food Books


Why do this project?

You only have to sit with your class at lunchtime to know that food is a popular topic of conversation for small children. The great strength of this project is that children already know this genre of text. They will have seen food books at home or in the classroom library. Children also like list books – where something different is shared on each page. They see them as an opportunity to share about the things they know about or that are important to them. It’s nice to invite children to make their Food Book for an audience younger than them like babies or toddlers.
