It's breakfast time around the world, in countries near and far. Wake up, world! It's time to eat, no matter where you are.

Children everywhere are waking up for breakfast, but what do they eat? In Japan students eat soured soybeans called natto. In Brazil, even kids drink coffee -- with lots of milk!

What do you eat for breakfast?

Come along and explore what kids in twelve countries around the world eat for the most important meal of the day!

Loved this book! The illustrations were a wonderful voyage around the world learning what people everywhere eat for breakfast.
Adorable text and illustrations will draw kids in - and what kid doesn't love food? Nice way to introduce young children to different cultures!

I own this book and love it. They go through so many countries while rhyming beautifully and keeping the story engaging. There are also great side stories within the illustrations. A must for teachers during cultural diversity lessons.
I'm doing a world cultures study with my kids this year. This book looks perfect!
