Book Tale: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

One of my favourite books is “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle” by Barbara Kingsolver.  I ate up everything this book had to offer during my first read through, but now that I have a giant yard and garden of my own to cultivate, the second reading is even more meaningful.  Kingsolver aims to encourage people (North Americans in particular) to observe their food purchasing and consuming habits, while documenting and striving to feed her own family on homegrown and local foods.  This book also serves as a cry for curriculum change in schools.  As Kingsolver says, “If this book is not exactly an argument for reinstating food production classes in schools (and it might be), it does contain a whole lot of what you might learn there” (p. 9).
