Fry Bread: A Native American Family Story

Kevin Noble Maillard and Juana Martinez-Neal

Fry Bread: A Native American Family Story

Roaring Brook Press

Fry Bread is a story told in lyrics, each verse beginning with “fry bread is…” Accompanied by beautiful illustrations, author Maillard describes the ingredients, the texture, and the taste of fry bread and then expands into more—what and who fry bread represents. He shares the history of Native American people in a way that is accessible for young children. And he powerfully celebrates Native American culture, leaving the reader feeling thoughtful, inspired, and maybe a little hungry. Thankfully, the author includes a recipe for fry bread at the end.
