About this title

Synopsis:

Milk doesn't just appear in your refrigerator, or apples on your kitchen counter. Before we eat, many people must work very hard planting grain, catching fish, tending animals, and filling crates. In this book, vibrantly illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Mary Azarian, readers find out what must happen before food can get to our table to nourish our bodies and spirits.

From Whole Foods - Whole Kids Foundation News: Dig into a story that will get your kid curious about and engaged with how food goes from garden to table! In Before We Eat: From Farm to Table, you'll find out what happens before food lands on the table to fill our tummies and nourish our bodies. Read this vibrantly illustrated story aloud to your budding chefs, and encourage them to get cooking in the kitchen this Thanksgiving! (Chosen as the November Book Club Book)

About the Author:

Pat Brisson is the author of 20 books for young readers, including The Summer My Father Was Ten and Sometimes We Were Brave (both from Boyds Mills Press). A graduate of Rutgers University, she is a former elementary school teacher, school librarian, and public-library reference librarian. Pat lives in New Jersey with her husband.

Artist Mary Azarian is the Caldecott-Medal winning illustrator of Snowflake Bentley, written by Jacqueline Briggs Martin (1999, Houghton Mifflin). She created the pictures for Before We Eat by first carving the pictures in wood (in reverse!) and then printing them with ink onto paper before adding the color with watercolor paints. She lives and creates her art on a hilltop farm in Vermont.
