From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-While these titles deal with popular topics, neither one does justice to its subject. Chewing Gum includes the basic ingredients found in all types of gum and a very brief look at its history. The existence of the sugar-free variety rates only a single sentence, but the dental benefits of chewing gum get an entire paragraph. One bit of good news is "swallowed gum does not stick to your intestines." Whew! Chewing gum to relieve pain after orthodontic adjustments is not mentioned, and it is one of the "legal" reasons to chew gum in school. The popularity of hamburgers in the United States is the key idea repeated over and over in the book devoted to that topic. After a brief history, Landau states, "We eat 38 billion hamburgers each year. That is good news for kids." The effect of eating fried, red meat on personal-health concerns like cholesterol and heart disease gets hardly a mention, and mad cow disease and skyrocketing rates of obesity in children are completely ignored. The bold color photos in both books are visually striking, but scrape off the gravy and little actual meat remains. Lila Perl's The Hamburger Book (Clarion, 1974; o.p.) and Lee Wardlaw's Bubblemania (S & S, 1997) are better choices.
