Totally Bamboo a Slice of Life Indiana Serving and Cutting Board
Not a book about Indiana , but a cutting board with a map of Indiana. Would be interesting for young children to look at – there’s so many great Indiana town names like Muncie and Kokomo.
Remember though, etched cutting boards collect more bacteria in the hard-to-clean surfaces. So I don’t know that I’d recommend this cutting board as sanitary, but it is decorative and a quick lesson in geography.
