A Japanese girl, Taro Yukiko, has severe skin allergies. Her mother is always busy working in the city, so she stays in the village to live with her grandfather and grandmother.
It turns out roughly 10% to 20% of Taiwanese children suffer from atopic dermatitis, which causes skin sensitivities. In addition to genetic factors, the environment and diet also play a large role.
Through Yukiko's eyes in Slow Bread, we experience the beautiful Japanese countryside, while learning about the growing process of wheat and how bread is made.
It illustrates the importance of organic farming, and lets our young readers understand that food not only contains nutrients provided by nature, but the also the love and care of the people who made it.
