Booklist Review of Blow Up a Burger

This entry in the Deconstructed Diets series (6 titles) gets children thinking about the food they eat in multiple ways. First, it informs them that a diet is not a weight-loss plan but rather what we eat and drink in a day. Then the high-interest book, enhanced with easy-to-understand text, vibrant graphics, colorful photographs, and sidebar facts, focuses on the great American cuisine. A short history explains that the concept of burgers actually originated in Hamburg, Germany. As Vallepur proceeds to “blow up a burger,” she takes readers through the main components of a burger, their ingredients, and occasional modifications. For instance, Vallepur includes vegetarian and gluten-free burger variations, as well as burgers from around the world. With its emphasis on variety and fun, this is one series kids will eat up!
