Synopsis

My Mom is a Foreigner, But Not to Me by Julianne Moore

Bestselling author and award-winning actress Julianne Moore pays homage to all the Muttis, Mammas, and Mamans who are from another country. A foreign mum may eat, speak and dress differently than other mums- she may wear special clothes for holidays, twist hair in strange old-fashioned braids and cook recipes passed down from grandma. Such a mum may be different than other mums, but she is also clearly the best. Vividly illustrated by Meilo So, this funny and heartwarming picture book about growing up in multiple cultures celebrates the diverse world in which we live.
