Rice & Rocks

Sandra L. Richards



I woke up feeling great! It was Sunday. No school. No itchy uniform. I could play my trumpet, read my Godzilla comics and draw another picture of a frog. And hang out with Jasper. What I loved most about Sundays was my whole came to visit. Jasper is an African Congo gray parrot. He was a birthday surprise from my Auntie last year. Everyone thought that Jasper is a normal parrot. But Auntie and I knew better!

Everyone else thought Jasper was a normal parrot, but Auntie and I knew better.

Rice & Rocks 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.
