Library Media Connection: Even Aliens Need Snacks

A young chef loves to try new recipes that his sister thinks are disgusting and that no one would ever eat. He sets up a stand to sell his snacks and finds that she might be right. But in the middle of the night, a spaceship lands in his backyard and the aliens love his recipes! All summer, he cooks and bakes for his new alien friends. There are colorful illustrations that kids are sure to love. This book could be used to spark creativity and writing—have students write their own recipes. Teachers and librarians could pair this with nonfiction selections about food. Valerie Byrd Fort, Library Media Specialist, New Providence Elementary School, Lexington, South Carolina
