Review:

"This book is so clear and so beautifully expressed, its message of love and food literacy will become a part of the lives of all who read it, regardless of their age." --Mollie Katzen, author of Moosewood Cookbook and Pretend Soup

"A wonderful way to introduce children to bread. George Levenson connects food and nature in an enchanting and essential way." --Alice Waters, owner of Chez Panisse

"Bread Comes to Life captures in simple yet profound images, the wonder, beauty, and, yes, magic of the humble yet majestic journey from wheat to eat." --Peter Reinhart, award-winning author of The Bread Baker's Apprentice

About the Author:
