“These essays . . . are concrete and eye-opening, touching on how food affects (and is affected by) migration, immigration, war, flight, history, and home.” —The New Yorker Winner, IACP Award for Best Book of the Year in Food Matters Named one of the Best Food Books of the Year by The New Yorker, Smithsonian, The Boston Globe, The Guardian, and more Good food is the common ground shared by all of us, and immigration is fundamental to good food.

Don’t believe it? Read on to discover more about the subtle (and not so subtle) bonds created by the ways we eat. Everybody Wraps Meat in Flatbread: From tacos to dosas to pancakes, bundling meat in an edible wrapper is a global practice. Fried Chicken Is Common Ground: We all share the pleasure of eating crunchy fried birds. Shouldn’t we share the implications as well?

Books Description:

Raising children is no small feat. There are many challenges and biting can be one of them. Mimi Soes, who founded and managed a small private school and childcare facility for forty years (infants through gr.5) offers guidance and advice for parents and early childcare educators on “the why and how” to handle the shock, the fear and subsequent drama that occurs when a child lashes out in frustration and bites. While illustrating a biting incident from a teacher’s point of view, Soes leads others through a different perspective that illustrates the challenges a teacher faces before, during and after a child bites, and offers reasons why children bite. The ‘Bite Book’ offers a seasoned childhood educator’s view on biting children, ways to prevent such behavior, and encouragement for parents and teachers that a little understanding, awareness, cooperation, and patience goes a long way when dealing with problematic behavior in children.

Books Description:

The financial crisis of 2008 quickly gave rise to a growing body of fiction: "crunch lit". Populated by a host of unsympathetic characters and centred around banking institutions, these 'recession writings' take the financial crisis as their central narrative concern to produce a new wave of literary and popular writings that satirise the origins and effects of modern life, consumer culture and the credit boom. Examining a range of texts from such writers as John Lanchester, Jonathan Franzen, Don DeLillo, Sebastian Faulks and Bret Easton Ellis, this book offers the first wide-ranging guide to this new genre. Exploring the key themes of the genre and its antecedents in fictional representations of finance by the likes of Dickens, Conrad, Zola and Trollope, Crunch Lit also includes a timeline of key historical events, guides to further and online resources and biographies of key authors. Supported by online resources, the book is an essential read for students of 21st century literature and culture.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER TV star Misha Collins and his wife, journalist and historian Vicki Collins, show families how to be mealtime adventurers so that kids might have a lifelong relationship with real food Chicken nuggets. Hot dogs. Macaroni and cheese. These are just some of the greatest hits we offer kids at mealtime. Misha and Vicki Collins totally get it. When their son West was a toddler, he began refusing anything that wasn’t bland and beige. At first, they succumbed, anything to end the mealtime battles. But with sinking hearts they realized fruit snacks and buttered noodles weren’t just void of nutrition, they were setting him up for a lifetime with a limited palate and a reliance on convenience foods. So, as a family, they decided to lean into what they love best—adventure—and invited their kids to be playful and exploratory in the kitchen. Now, in The Adventurous Eaters Club, Misha and Vicki share how they created a home where mealtime doesn’t involve coercion or trickery, and where salad, veggies, fresh soups, and fruit are the main course. Combining personal anecdotes and practical tips with over 100 creative, delicious, whimsical recipes little hands can help prepare The Adventurous Eaters Club offers readers all the support, encouragement, and practical advice they need to make lifelong adventurous eaters out of their kids.
