About the Book

Book Description:  Tradition takes flight in Rice & Rocks, a picture book celebrating culture and diversity. Giovanni's friends are coming over for Sunday dinner, and his grandmother is serving rice and beans. Giovanni is embarrassed he does not like 'rice and rocks' and worries his friends will think the traditional Jamaican dish is weird. But his favorite Auntie comes to the rescue. She and Giovanni's pet parrot, Jasper, take him on a magical journey across the globe, visiting places where people eat rice and rocks. This exciting story celebrates the varied traditions of every culture while also highlighting the delicious similarities that bring us all together.

Take a look inside the book...






Rice & Rocks teaches children the value of heritage and taking pride in it, of course in a good way.  I was impressed with the cultural diversity in the book as well as the similarities of rice and rocks in cultures.  The theme in this book is definitely a needed one.  I'll be seeking out more books from Sandra Richards.
