A short chapter book that teaches the history of ice cream, the believed origins up to its modern day history.

At the end of the four chapters, your young reader will find flags of various countries and ice cream flavors. There is also a section that will help you to teach the science behind ice cream and for those of you that want to use this as a classroom or homeschooling lesson, there is a History of Ice Cream quiz at the end.

It was surprising how much I did not know about ice cream and this easy to read book, will make both the reading and learning fun. There is no reason to rush through this book and if you wanted to spread it out over a couple of days, the flow remains and you can jump right back in where you last ended.

This is a great addition to your learning library.
