ways rice is prepared at the different households visited.

Summary- This book was about a little girl who went looking for her brother among all her neighbors' houses. At each house she talked about where the family came from and what they were making and she ate a little food. Each family was making a different dish but all included some type of rice. After going through many different houses and cultures and learning about many different kinds of rice she goes home and finds her brother there. The little girl mentions how everyone was having rice for dinner that night.
Genre- This book would be realistic fiction because this is a story that could be true.
Age- 2nd-5th grade.
Media- It does not say but possibly oil painting or some type of drawing.

This is a story about a little girl named Carrie who is sent out to find her brother before dinner. While she is searching in her neighborhood she learns that all her neighbors eat rice, buts it’s not cooked the same. This teaches her we are not so different after all.

Personal Reaction
I think this book connects cultures together with food. I think this is a great book to teach children that the way we look on the outside doesn’t mean we are not the same on the inside.

Extension Ideas
1. Have the children come up with different ways to eat rice.
2. Then have them pair the type of rice with the culture. ( )
