It folds in history, from Alexander the Great to internment camps to the roots of fortune cookies, while focusing on interesting stories about foods kids love. And the tone of the 'Keep Being Awesome' health-tip sidebars was spot on!
Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
Tim Meyers, of Santa Clara, California and 2001 winner of the international L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future contest, announced the release of his latest book, "Rude Dude's Book of Food." This is his eleventh book release since winning the contest. Tim J. Myers is a writer, storyteller, songwriter, and teacher. He has eleven children’s books out and four on the way, has won numerous awards, and has published fiction, non-fiction, and poetry for children and adults.
"Rude Dude's Book of Food" has a unique take on food and is designed to both educate and entertain at the same time. It's actually true that Mongol warriors rode with slabs of raw meat under their saddles then ate them that night in camp! It's actually true that Chinese archaeologists found 4,000-year-old noodles in an overturned cup. It's actually true that Americans buy $1 billion worth of chocolate each Valentine's Day. You think food is just stuff we eat!? Come on! There's a world full of great food stories out there—and Rude Dude's going to tell them!
Rave reviews are abounding including the following:
"Rude Dude's Book of Food has powerful and poignant moments in between delightful fun and whimsy! It folds in history, from Alexander the Great to internment camps to the roots of fortune cookies, while focusing on interesting stories about foods kids love. And the tone of the 'Keep Being Awesome' health-tip sidebars was spot on!"—Barbara M. Burns, Ph.D. Professor and Director of Liberal Studies: Pre-Teaching and Child Studies, Santa Clara University.
"I found Tim J. Myers' Rude Dude's Book of Food humorous and fun and full of facts about food. In a time when many kids are spending a ton of time on gadgets and texting, not getting proper exercise and a proprer diet, it is so important that they understand that 'they are what they eat.' This book accomplishes that in a straightforward but fun way. Hey, I even learned a fact or two I wasn't aware of . . ." —Chef James "Jimmy" Canora, Delmonico's, NYC
The book is now available at Amazon.com.
One of Tim's previous children's books, "Basho and the Fox", was a New York Times bestseller.
