Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eileen Hanning
Sara's father is a rice farmer. He works long, hard hours in the rice fields. When Sara feels angry because she misses him, her grandmother reminds her how important rice farming is to her family. Together, Nana and Sara make a sweet rice pie and tell the story of how rice is grown. The watercolor illustrations show Sara and Nana cooking and the quilt-like borders above each picture depict the process of growing rice. The last page of the book even includes a recipe for rice pie. While the language is a little stilted and the illustrations heavy, the topic and approach are unique enough to warrant interest by readers who like cooking or have a specific interest in rice.
