Starred Review:

Rice from Heaven

The Secret Mission to Feed North Koreans

North Korean refugees share this fascinating true story of a secret mission that launched hundreds of rice-filled balloons under the cover of rain and darkness across the border from South Korea to the starving families left behind. Beautiful, intricately detailed illustrations highlight the culture, customs, and landscape while gently educating children about the vastly different political climates and shared history of North and South Korea.
