MAGIC RAMEN by Andrea Wang, illustrated by Kana Urbanowicz
My middle schoolers love, love, love their ramen noodles.
And I'm pretty sure they will love this picture book biography that describes how Momofuku Ando invented ramen noodles shortly after World War II. Thinking MAGIC RAMEN would pair really well with POP: THE INVENTION OF BUBBLE GUM by MEGHAN McCARTHY. Or make a nice addition to a unit on persistence.
End pages include an author's note, a pronunciation guide, and an afterword with additional information about Momofuku Ando.
