Where Does My Food Come From?

When I go to the Grocery Store...there are so many choices.

Where did that food come from?
Be a food detective...
What questions can we ask?

Does the food magically appear in the store?
Do the apples grow in the produce bins?
Does the cereal box get packaged on the shelf?
Does the meat naturally come in plastic packages?

Write your answers in the comments and write more food detective questions.

Writing for Change

I have just returned from a children's book writers conference. I met many other authors that are creating inspirational books for kids and heard about many projects kids are participating in and working on that I am excited to share with you here on the kids change the world blog.

How can I make a difference in the world?

I also met author Jesse Joshua Watson
He just wrote a book about the earthquake last year in Haiti and how kids can help kids in Haiti rebuild their homes, schools, and communities. Check it out.

How did you celebrate Cesar's Birthday?

I worked on a children's book I am writing about Cesar Chavez.
He is such an inspiration.

My favorite Cesar Chavez quote:
“Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You
cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore. We have seen the future, and the future is ours.”
