Abrams Books for Young Readers A World of Food

Carl Warner is a professional photographer known for his miniature landscapes made entirely from edible ingredients. A World of Food presents 12 of his amazing pictures, each one showing young readers what the world might look like if there... were only a single color. ?Yellow? is a desert made of pasta palm trees, cereal sand, and swiss cheese pyramids, while ?Orange? features pumpkin cottages, carrot trees, and apricot leaves. Playful verse accompanies each image, guiding viewers through the pictures and inviting them to figure out the various foods used (which are all identified at the back of the book). This is a wonderful book about colors and creativity for parents and children to look through together and discover the many different foods that make up Warner?s fantastical world. Praise for A World of Food Children will delight in pointing at the sweet ingredients, such as meringue clouds and lollipop trees. ?Wall Street Journal Kids and adults alike will marvel at these painstakingly assembled and composed photos, eagerly identifying the foods that make up the details of the landscapes. ?Kirkus Reviews Book Details: Format: Hardcover Publication Date: 5/1/2012 Pages: 32 Reading Level: Age 4 and Up Author: Carl Warner Publisher: Abrams Books for Young Readers Dimensions: 10.98in length x 0.51in width x 9.99in height Weight: 17.6oz.

In this one-of-a-kind historical picture book, author Glennette Tilley Turner tells the story of Fort Mose, which was founded in S...t. Augustine, Florida, and was the first free African settlement to legally exist in what later became the United States. Fort Mose was not only the first free black settlement, but it was also the most southern link of the Underground Railroad as a haven of refuge, just as cities in Canada were the northern most link. Beginning with the story of Francisco Menendez, the Captain of the Black Militia of St. Augustine, FORT MOSE follows the history of slavery from West Africa to America, recounts what daily life was like, and describes the founding of the Spanish colony?s Fort Mose. Established in 1738, Fort Mose gave sanctuary to escaped Africans, challenging slavery in the English colonies. Approximately one hundred Africans lived together, creating a frontier community that drew on a range of African backgrounds, blending them with those of Spanish, Native American, and English people and cultural traditions. The book includes more than forty archival images, an afterword about uncovering Fort Mose (which is now part of the National Parks), a glossary, an author?s note, a bibliography, and an index.
