Bana si Pisang Berjalan-jalan is a storybook that portrays the story of the lifecycle of banana. This book illustrates how a food journey takes place, from getting raw materials to processed food. This book also explains that food scraps should not be thrown away, but processed into compost. With this book, hopefully children will understand where their food comes from and how to manage their food, including reducing their food waste.
