    I was looking for a supplement for my 8th grade son that would go along with his Home Economics course and this fit the bill. The Food Anatomy book is a wonderful addition to any home and the notebooking pages are perfectly laid out with the book. This is definitely an open and go resource. This is such a great way to teach anyone about other cultures, which is my favorite part. My son is enjoying this very much!

    We have always loved the Rothman series and having the companion notebooking packets is fantastic. I have older children and we still like using the series. I am learning a lot as well.

  3. Amberly May

    When I first purchased the Food Anatomy book by Julie Rothman, I couldn’t figure out how to incorporate it into our homeschool schedule. But when I purchased the Companion Guide notebook, it all came together! The Companion Guide to Food Anatomy is a great addition to our homeschool lessons!

  4. Aspen Allen

    Currently this is a bit higher level than we are ready for but I couldn’t pass it up. We are a foodie kind of family and I am hoping that this inspires my kids to have a passion for food! Looking forward to the future when we can put this to good use!

  5. Janet Germiller

    I LOVE the Julia Rothman books and my daughter enjoys looking at them. Yet, as a homeschooling mom, I wanted something that makes her look at the information on each page more closely. I’m so glad that Daily Skill Building made this workbook. My daughter is in middle school and considering a food related career. This makes an amazing elective!

  6. C Sanguinetti

    This is the book that launched my family into the world of notebooking and I am so happy to have found it. I am so pleased with the quality of this book and the fact that I don’t need to prep for the lessons. My child has an interest in cooking, which is why I thought this book would be a good resource. Now, she is even more interested in international dishes and wants to try new foods, which is amazing seeing that she can be picky with what she eats. Overall, this is a fantastic homeschool resource.

  7. T Taylor

    My daughter is really loving using this journal along with the Food Anatomy book. She especially likes drawing in it daily. I have really appreciated that this is something she can do on her own, and it gives such enjoyable practice in writing and drawing about what she is learning.

    I am in love with the Julia Rothman books but wasn’t sure how to go about incorporating them into our homeschool day. Enter Daily Skill Building Notebook. This journal is amazing. The amount of time that must have gone into building this notebook is unbelievable. The Farm book was the first one I purchased and I was so blown away I knew I had to get the Ocean and Food Anatomy journals as well. My 11 and 14 year olds have really enjoyed these journals! I cannot wait to use this one for our Health unit later this year. I highly recommend them!

  9. Marcia Cabaday

    A great addition to our homeschool health class. Thank you for making such great content for us to use.

    I have a child who absolutely loves FOOD, so I thought the Food Notebook would be the perfect notebook to start with.

    The Food Anatomy book is engaging from the very beginning and my son (who loves to eat with his fingers) happily learnt and then demonstrated the correct way to eat with his fingers.

    In the Food Anatomy book your child (and you) will learn about the different food, culture and traditions of various countries. There are even some handy tips, techniques and recipes.

    The Food Anatomy notebook is a wonderful companion to the Food Anatomy book that reinforces learning and serves as a lovely record of work done that you and your child can be proud of.

      My husband learned how to cook when he was a kid (begrudgingly) and I reap the benefits of it to this day! It’s great to see kids being foodies at a young age!

    Really good notebook

  12. Yvie

    We love the beautiful Julia Rothman books! My children have been working through the notebooks for Nature, Farm, and Ocean Anatomy, but I wanted to work through Food Anatomy…just as mom-learning. I am very impressed at the quality of these notebooks and how much they help the student to retain! By writing notes and drawing the graphics into your notebook, it helps the brain cover the information in more ways, thus ensuring you’re more likely to remember it.

Flexible for use with all ages, this add-on collection follows along with the book and includes chapter coloring pages and a blank notebooking page for every section in Food Anatomy!

Students will enjoy being creative and drawing the in the box and writing whatever they want to – instead of being guided with questions and instructed to sketch specific things.

These notebooks are perfect for true written narration and summarizing learned material and a great addition to the full Notebook Companions. This collection is not sold separately and only available as an add-on.
