5.0 out of 5 stars Read aloud in grades k-3; don't skip the author's note!
Reviewed in the United States on February 16, 2020
Winner of ALA's Sibert Award for Nonfiction 2020

A beautiful book to read aloud with illustrations that your students will want to return to and examine over and over again. Maillard, a member of the Seminole Nation, Mekusukey band, describes in simple verse not only this the physical properties of fry bread (which will make you want some) but also what fry bread represents to those who make and eat it--time, art, history, place, nation. Juan Martinez-Neal's illustrations are rich, beautiful, engaging for our youngest readers/learners.

READING THE AUTHOR'S NOTE (for ourself) or back matter is critical to helping our k-3 students make the most of this book. As I read the author's note--I realized how much I missed in Martinez-Neal's illustrations and in the meaning of Maillard's carefully chose words--the Indigenous people's art (placed carefully in the illustrations at various points), the choice of who to represent (in the illustrations and in the words) and so forth. I'd want to keep an eye on what Maillard includes in the notes as I present two-page layouts in the book to students and ask, "What do you notice?" and "Why do you think the illustrator made those choices?" or "Why do you think the author chose this word?"

Maillard's notes also highlight how there's not one kind of fry bread--fry bread looks different across families and even within a family and yet it still serves to represent. This idea provides so much content for thoughtful conversations with students.

Honestly, I think this could be read aloud or read-by-a-small group-of-students in grades k-8 for different purposes. Older students could read and discuss the back matter and then revisit the author's word choice and evaluate more thoughtfully the illustrator's choices.
