This breakfast-table tour of 12 countries is a charming, colorful exploration of how people around the world live and eat, subtly showing how they're like you and different from you. Even though they may eat things you'd never eat for breakfast, or might eat their meal sitting on the floor and with their hands or with chopsticks instead of a knife and fork, they wake up and eat breakfast with their family just like you do.

There's a lot to look at and talk about on each spread in Pancakes to Parathas: Breakfast Around the World -- not only food dishes, fruits, and vegetables but also maps of the countries and typical buildings and famous landmarks -- making this book great for read-aloud or independent reading.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
