The Check It Out series highlights the most popular texts on LightSail, around a specific monthly theme or topic, based on our user data. Every month we’ll share which books LightSail readers can’t stop checking out. These insights help us curate book lists for our schools that we know will keep students engaged and growing.
Who doesn’t love to eat? Not only is food delicious, it’s also the fuel for the body. Food has the power to bring friends and families together around the table. November, in particular, is a time filled with potlucks, Friends-givings and, of course, the primetime Thanksgiving feast. Holidays aside, eating brings joy and often reminds us to be thankful for what we have. Food can stop our tears, calm anxiety, and make even the “hangriest” person smile!
With all of these food-centric events, it’s no surprise that our LightSail readers have been checking out books about the many mouth-watering dishes coming their way!
