Fry Bread [hc]
A Native American Family Story
Written by Kevin Noble Maillard, who is originally from Oklahoma and is an enrolled citizen of the Seminole Nation. Illustrated by Juana Martinez-Neal, a Peruvian American artist.
A debut picture book about food, family, history, and culture.
Fry bread is food.
It is warm and delicious, piled high on a plate.
Fry bread is time.
It brings families together for meals and new memories.
Fry bread is nation.
It might look or taste different, but it is still shared by many, from coast to coast and beyond.
Fry bread is us.
It is a celebration of old and new, traditional and modern, similarity and difference.
"Maillard and Martinez-Neal bring depth, detail, and whimsy to this Native American food story, with text and illustrations depicting the diversity of indigenous peoples, the role of continuity between generations, and the adaptation over time of people, place, and tradition." -Booklist, Starred Review (Kindergarten-Grade 2)
