rice-and-rocks
 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. rice-screenshot 


Praise for Rice & Rocks

 "I feel as if Rice & Rocks was written for the 7 year old me stuck in a foreign country. I wish I could have read it when I was a kid since it would have really helped me to feel a lot more comfortable with my roots, my traditions, in a foreign place with people of other colors & customs." - Melissa Robles, The Reader and the Chef "Rice & Rocks is a beautifully illustrated, culturally diverse children's book centered around my favorite topic...food!...Parents will enjoy reading it with/to their little ones because the illustrations compliment the story perfectly. This book will also work as a good conversation starter for acceptance of self and others for school age children." - D.S. White, Divine Perspective

OMG...I did it again by Talia Aikens-Nuñez, Giveaway & Review

OMG... I did it again

OMG... I Did It Again? by Talia Aikens-Nuñez 

April Appleton wakes up to quite the sight: a herd of elephants marching down her street! She realizes that her powers of witchcraft have done it again. With her friends, Grace and Eve, April must figure out how the elephants got to her town in the first place and then how to get them back home. But with elephants playing in the neighbor's pool, sitting on cars and eating everyone's trees, how will they do it? Early readers will delight in the misadventures of this reluctant witch and her plucky friends as they try to figure out how to use April's powers to do good in the world.

Review

I definitely love a book with a fun female protagonist! My daughter, who is six, and I read this book together. My daughter really enjoyed the work. Sometimes she gets bored reading some chapter books, but the humor and great characters really held her attention.

We both really enjoyed April's character. As well, the author did a wonderful job of developing a fun world, complete with magic galore, and well-developed characters that children can enjoy reading about. Grace and Eve were great additions. The magical element was a joy to read. Fun, sweet, and magically charming. All around a great book! Highly recommended!
