book Dragonfly's Tale
by Kristina Rodanas

Food. Food. Food.

The People in the story Dragonfly's Tale grow three main foods. They are corn, beans, and squash. These foods can be stored to feed the people of the village for the whole year.

Think about three foods you often eat. Where does your family get them? Where does each food come from? Is it raised by a farmer, baked in the bakery, or caught in the sea? Draw simple pictures of the three foods, then tell where your family got each food and from where it came.
