The World in Your Lunch Box by Claire Earmer
This is a Juvenile literature title with histories of favorite lunch box food items. Author Claire Earmer has selected different appropriate lunch box fare (sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, pita pockets, pizza, easy finger foods, and snacks) and breaks each component down tracing its history. While the history is both fun and well written with a kid in mind, the illustrations and art by Sa Boothroyd were really captivating and brought the words to life.
