Product description


"[Lunch From Home] touches on positive portrayals of diversity and inclusiveness and appreciating the connections between food, culture, and family traditions; the four kids in this story are based on real people, each of whom is a professional chef, which adds meaningful weight to their experiences. Bright, naturalistic art vibrantly depicts the kids in the classroom and, of course, their delicious-looking lunches." -- Booklist

"[The] meals are lovingly described by Stein and depicted in vibrant color by Li in this epicurean picture book." -- Publishers Weekly

"[A] layered tale about peer pressure and cultural pride around the lunch table." -- San Francisco Chronicle

-Amazon Best Book (2022)

-Named a Notable Social Studies Trade Book by the National Council for the Social Studies and Children's Book Council (2023)

He is the author of multiple adult books, including Food & Beer (Phaidon), Epicurean Journeys (Rizzoli), To Me He Was Just Dad (Artisan), as well as the co-author of Notes from a Young Black Chef (Knopf). He has also written several children's books, including Can I Eat That?; Brick, Who Found Herself in Architecture; The Ball Book (all Phaidon); and most recently The Invisible Alphabet and Solitary Animals: Introverts of the Wild (Rise x Penguin Workshop). He recently founded The Band Books, a band that performs children's books to music.

Jing Li is a freelance illustrator living and working in Beijing, China. She started making art at age four and has been drawing ever since. In 2013, she moved to the US to study and now holds two MFA degrees with SCAD and MICA. After recently moving back to China, the COVID-19 pandemic erupted, the epicenter of the virus just two hours from her home in Yichang. During the lockdown, she created art for the Washington Post about pandemic life in China, humanizing the difficult experience. In her other work, she is inspired by Hutong culture and by her city’s history and fashion. When she’s not working, she’s spending time with her dogs and taking them for walks. With her art, she hopes to leave behind moments of her life for other to discover for years to come.
