How Oma Says I Love You

– Written By Shanie Cooper, Illustrated by Nai Saechao

How many different ways can you say, “I love you?” 

Rosie loves spending time at her grandmother’s house. They cook, sew, and read together, but best of all, Oma tells Rosie stories about her childhood. Even though they are generations apart, Rosie and Oma are not so different at all. And Rosie discovers that every interaction is another opportunity to say “I love you.” Join Rosie as she learns about love, tradition, history, and the importance of connection.

Available in hardcover, paperback, and ebook.
