Before We Eat: from farm to table Second Editionby Pat Brisson
Milk doesn’t just appear in a refrigerator, nor do apples grow in the bowl on a kitchen counter. Before we eat, many people work very hard—planting grain, catching fish, tending farm animals, and filling crates of vegetables. With vibrant illustrations by Caldecott Medalist Mary Azarian, this book reminds us what must happen before food gets to our tables to nourish our bodies and spirits.
This expanded edition of Before We Eat includes back-of-book features about school gardens and the national farm-to-school movement.
