The Omnivore’s Dilemma: The Secrets Behind What You Eat, Young Readers Edition
By Michael Pollan
Read by MacLeod Andrews
Published by Listening Library

Summary: ‘What ‘s for dinner?’ seemed like a simple question-until journalist and supermarket detective Michael Pollan delved behind the scenes. From fast food and big organic to small farms and old-fashioned hunting and gathering, this young readers’ adaptation of Pollan’s famous food-chain exploration encourages kids to consider the personal and global health implications of their food choices. In a smart, compelling format with updated facts, plenty of photos, graphs, and visuals, as well as a new afterword and backmatter, The Omnivore’s Dilemma serves up a bold message to the generation that needs it most: It’s time to take charge of our national eating habits-and it starts with you.
