2019 Picture Books: Food

This topic was suggested by one of my Instagram followers and I’m so glad they sent it in! There are a wealth of books coming out this year about food, and it’s great to see a growing diversity of cultural representation. Food is such a key component of culture. A simple way to diversify your storytimes is by thinking critically about the types of food you read and sing about. Hopefully these new books can help!
