Reviews of The Omnivore’s Dilemma: Young Readers Edition
His work has been updated and made youth-friendly in a new edition, "The Omnivore's Dilemma for Kids: The Secrets Behind What You Eat." The target audience is 8- to 12-year-olds, though it might also appeal to adult readers turned off by drier nutrition- and environment-oriented tomes.
Originally written for adults and now adapted for teens, this "must read" tells you much of what you need to know about the foods you put into your body on a daily basis.
Based on Pollan's best-selling adult book of the same title, this (slightly) shortened version will appeal to thoughtful, socially responsible teens.
Not bedtime reading, but certainly food for thought, made slightly easier to chew thanks to graphs, and drawings.
