Thank You, Omu! by author/ illustrator Oge Mora

Age Range: 4 – 7 years

Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Publication Date: October 2, 2018

A woman named Omu cooks up a fragrant stew. The aroma alerts the olfactory senses of many townspeople. Each person follows the scent to Omu’s house. She graciously gives visitors portions of her stew which eventually leaves her without any for herself. The townspeople show Omu similar kindness. The collage illustrations show varieties in occupations and ethnicities. My Book Eyes marveled at discussions that this book could generate including collaboration, helping others, occupations to name a few.

Oge Mora plans to be at Children’s Day at the Brooklyn Book Festival on September 21, 2019 at 2:00 PM. Click on EVENTS above for information about Brooklyn Book Festival.
