Rice & Rocks by Sandra L Richards

New York, NY— First time author, Sandra L. Richards, teamed with “mommy” bloggers and children’s lit enthusiasts, Pragmatic Mom and Here Wee Read for the exclusive cover reveal of her highly anticipated debut children’s book, Rice & Rocks.

She and Giovanni’s pet parrot, Jasper, take him on a magical journey across the globe, visiting places where people eat different versions of rice and rocks—reveling in the varied traditions of different culture while highlighting the delicious similarities that links us together.

The picture book will be released in print and eBook formats on August 16th, 2016 and a special pre-order offer for signed copies is now open on the author’s website. For every five books sold, Sandra will donate one to a children’s literacy organization.
