Product Detail:A Survival Story of the Cambodian Genocide Written by Icy Smith
Illustrated by Sopaul Nhem

Nine-year-old Nat is forced out of his Cambodian home and marched into the countryside when the Khmer Rouge comes into power. Nat is separated from his family and endures forced labor in rice fields from dawn to midnight with little food. Over the next four years, Nat confronts starvation, fear, and brutality. With the help of his friend Malis, Nat finds hope and the strength to escape, eventually reuniting with the family he loves.

"Half Spoon of Rice" is based on true stories of courage, friendship, survival, and the triumph of the human spirit. The book features vivid illustrations and historical photographs documenting the Cambodian genocide from 1975 to 1979.

Winner of the Moonbeam Children's Award and the Skipping Stones Honor Award.

Although a picture book subject maybe too intense for small children.
