Synopsis

Ethics of Food Pack A of 5 by Michael Burgan, Patrick Catel, John Bliss

This engaging, cross-curricular series introduces and explains the ethical issues and big business behind what we eat, and how making choices at the supermarket can either keep things as they are or affect real change. It explores various models of production, health & safety, animal welfare, the role of supermarkets, what is and is not sustainable - and, of course, if current methods can feed the world's population.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
