What’s in my lunchbox

Peter Carnavas, illustrated by Kat Chadwick
New Frontier Publishing
ISBN: 9781925059038           RRP: $24.99

Food is a very important school topic, especially healthy food choices in the lunchbox – as shown on the endpapers of this book. What if the lunchbox contains something you don’t like? What are the options? Well you could have... No, let’s not go into that here; try the book for that! Maybe you should be thankful for what you are given. The child character grounds this story in the world of young readers; and they get the point. The colourful poster-print style of drawing adds to the enjoyment of this book for early childhood readers.
