Fry Bread: a Native American Family Story - Cover
Fry Bread: a Native American Family Story
Kevin Noble Maillard, Roaring Brook Press 2019
A gorgeously illustrated book showing the great diversity in Native Americans today. A celebration of Fry Bread (including a family recipe, and the idea that it is a special food like birthday cake). A listing (singing!) of the names of Native people's tribes and nations. All this while following a group of children helping to make fry bread, listening to elders, and celebrating together. One of the best books joyfully and honestly celebrating Native peoples.
