A series of engaging missions that help you learn more about food, where it comes from, where it ends up and how to generally be more thoughtful around what you eat. Lots of mess and fun for all ages.

Wow, this series gets better as it goes on... Continuing with its mission to encourage all ages to engage with, and explore, the wider world, this time the focus moves to food. Cookbook, guerrilla gardener's manual, sustainability handbook... the missions will provide hours of fun whilst illustrating that geography permeates every aspect of life. Engaging and quirky text supported by beautiful illustrations, it would be a brilliant gift for any age. Just don't leave it gathering dust on the bookshelf... remember 'it's good to play with your food!'

Having brought all of the previous mission explore books last year and spent a year throughly enjoying completing the missions with my daughter (aged 8 hard to please loves these!!) am thrilled to say that the new book has arrived just in time for the end of the holidays -as with the previous books there are great missions, fantastic illustrations - with this time the edition of some cool facts and recipes - apparently we are making ginger beer tomorrow?? Fantastic Book from a fantastic series can not recommend it enough!

This book is a must for all parents who enjoy an adventure with their children. So many fun things to do whilst children learn all about where their food comes from, how it's grown and the importance of caring for the environment.

Format: Kindle Edition
An exciting collection of guerilla geography activities to help children (and excitable adults) to get involved with the sustainable food chain.

Where else can you find ideas for activities which include writing a poo diary, carrot colouring, drawing your very own woodlouse castle, designing a machine that can cook using the elements, weighing yourself in rubbish, growing a teeny tiny salad, hints and tips on pooing...

I can't wait until my printed copy arrives in the post!

This book is great for kids and also the big kid in us all. Brilliant illustrations and such an original concept. Great way to get kids doing the things kids should be doing, having fun and getting a bit messy!
