Attention parents with foodies in the family: you might want to check out today’s nominee from the Elementary/Middle Grade Nonfiction category. Our blog review of the day looks at Chef Roy Choi and the Street Food Remix, written by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and June Jo Lee and illustrated by Man One. The book was reviewed over the summer by Round 2 judge Julie Williams, an elementary school teacher librarian in Maine who blogs at Reading by the Pond.
The story behind the story and the illustrations really added to the book. The messages of doing what you really love and giving back to your community were powerful.
