About The Book

Kevin Noble Maillard’s first children's book pays tribute to fry bread, a food of significant cultural importance to many Native Americans. Fry Bread is beautifully illustrated by Juana Martinez-Neal, author of Alma and How She Got Her Name, another book on our Shelf Help list this month. This picture book explores fry bread and its role in Native American families, communities, and traditions. The descriptions of fry bread will leave you hungry (fortunately, there’s a recipe included), and the explanations of what fry bread represents will make you want to read this book over and over.
