In a short story poem, a boy talks about going for rice. “I run with the rabbit/I jump and play/Today isn't Monday/It's wild rice day.” Young readers will feel the teller's delight in the “Real wild/wild rice” that “grows tall and free/and tastes real nice,” and in the pleasure of the day. Illustrated with line drawings embellished with designs from the Great Lakes tradition, this is a light-hearted and deeply satisfying little book.
