About the Book: Breakfast varies from country to country, but it's how all children begin their day. Explore the meals of twelve countries in this playful approach to the world with Pancakes to Parathas.

From Australia to India to the USA, come travel around the world at dawn. Children everywhere are waking up to breakfast. In Japan, students eat soured soybeans called natto. In Brazil, even kids drink coffee—with lots of milk! With rhythm and rhymes and bold, graphic art, Pancakes to Parathas invites young readers to explore the world through the most important meal of the day.

About the Author: Alice B. McGinty loves breakfast. It's among her favorite meals. She also loves to travel and get to know people, places, and foods around the world. The breakfasts she's eaten include cornmeal porridge in Jamaica, parathas and chutney in India, olives in Israel, huevos in Mexico, and just about everything in America.
