About the Book
The Cinnamon Stick - Tales of the Spice Trade covers a common spice in a new concept. This book on cinnamon history is in four parts; following each part are food and art activities pertaining to that time in history. I originally wrote this book as a Social Studies book for children, knowing how they love cinnamon. It did not seem to attract any publishers until offered to publish my book.

Cinnamon is mentioned in the Bible and has been in use for thousands of years. It has caused the opening of waterways, many wars were fought over its trade, the world opened up as explorers who discovered new lands in their search for spices and the riches it brought their country. Many events in the history of this world have included cinnamon and spices. I felt the need to add a new concept to seemingly dry history by adding what foods and art activities were in use during those times using modern methods of today.
