Title: Rice & Rocks

Genre: Childrens/Picture Book

Rating: *****

Review: I loved this book, it is all about embodying family, friendship and tradition. This is Giovanni’s story about learning to accept and embrace his family heritage and related tradition with some help from his magic pet parrot; Jasper. I loved the premise of this book and how multi-cultural this book was with characters from Jamaica and Japan as well as many other locations.

I also loved the illustrations in this book, they were absolute perfection. The writing and drawing style complimented the story perfectly, and provided a joyful reading experience. I would highly recommend this book to all parents with young children. I would also recommend this to older readers as it creates an amazing nostalgic experience that will transport you straight back to your childhood.

If you do nothing else this holiday season definitely go and buy this beautiful book. Sandra L. Richards is the debut picture book author of Rice & Rocks. With Rice & Rocks, Sandra brings a unique contribution to the world of children’s books. An American-born daughter of Jamaican immigrant parents, she hopes the book will serve as an educational resource for families seeking to teach their children the value of their heritage and the importance of cultural diversity.
