17 Mouthwatering Picture Books About Food (3-7)

Tasty stories to celebrate Book Week Scotland!

The theme of Book Week Scotland this year is Nourish. Food is a brilliant topic for children because every child has an experience of food that they can share with others, regardless of their age, race, or religion. We celebrate the theme of food with 17 wonderful books that tackle healthy eating, fussy eating, and just the pure joy of enjoying a sweet treat like chocolate cake! Happy reading (and eating) this Book week Scotland!
