Read.Explore.Learn. - How did that get in my lunchbox?

New lunchbox! Sprout was super excited about her pink Goodbyn Bynto. She wanted her lunch in it even though we ate at home :)

I packed her some carrots, a clementine, tomatoes, apple juice, a cheese sandwich, and a chocolate chip cookie - just like the lunch in our new book,  How Did That Get In My Lunchbox? The Story of Food. 

The book tells about the journey foods make from where they begin until they get to us, depicting orchards, farms, greenhouses, factories, dairies, and finally, all the foods  together in a child's lunchbox. It does not talk about meat, which was a relief. The girls and Pickle do not like to hear about animals becoming food. It does talk about healthy eating, what each food group does for our bodies, and how much we need of each. The small sproutlets & I liked it ... 3 thumbs up!

Sprout was pleased with her lunch except for the clementine - she has suddenly decided she doesn't like them anymore (this week) but she did like that everything in her lunch was in the book :) These pages of the book tell how cocoa beans end up chocolate chips like those in her cookie :

Today was a half day, school let out for Spring Break at noon, so everyone was home for lunch and had pretty much the same thing as Sprout, but on plates. Well, except Pickle who had his usual PB sandwich and yogurt.  Boy, was Birdie mad that she didn't have a Goodbyn lunchbox too!

It's Friday! It's Spring Break! Sailor Boy comes home soon! Wheee!
