This is a great book that shows the various groups of cultures that eat rice. This little girl goes around the neighborhood looking for her brother. She meets different neighbors from different cultures and they are all eating different kinds of rice. ( they give recipes for them too!)

I used this book for a Kindergarten Social Studies lesson that focused on families and diversity. I love the illustrations and the fact that the story is told from a child's perspective. The diversity represented is respectful and informational. I love how the author ended the story saying that basically we are all different, but we are all the same. Everybody cooks rice. Great book!
