This book is fun and engaging all the way through, with wonderful stylized art that uses thick blue lines to outline each person, plant, animal, and thing. Tyler is a clothed stick figure with a big round head and winning personality. Other people are more fleshed out. The lessons about where food comes from and how it gets from farm to table are seamlessly woven into the story of a curious boy on a mission to cook one of his favorite meals and give his parents a nice surprise.

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.
