Thank You Emu!
Author: Oge Mora
In this remarkable author-illustrator debut that's perfect for fans of Last Stop on Market Street and Extra Yarn, a generous woman is rewarded by her community.
Everyone in the neighborhood dreams of a taste of Omu's delicious stew! One by one, they follow their noses toward the scrumptious scent. And one by one, Omu offers a portion of her meal. Soon the pot is empty. Has she been so generous that she has nothing left for herself?
Debut author-illustrator Oge Mora brings to life a heartwarming story of sharing and community in colorful cut-paper designs as luscious as Omu's stew, with an extra serving of love. An author's note explains that "Omu" (pronounced AH-moo) means "queen" in the Igbo language of her parents, but growing up, she used it to mean "Grandma." This book was inspired by the strong female role models in Oge Mora's life.

Before leaving home, three separate children gaze into a mirror with feelings of self-doubt, wondering what people will think of them. They adventure out into the world, befriending each other along the way. Their Mutual quest for self-assurance takes them to a grand park, with an even grander work of art -- a magical reflective bean. There, they meet their inner voice, the image of their self-confidence reflected in their smiling faces. Filled up with self-acceptance, possibility and belief, the children dream about all that they can be. As the children return home, they take with them the gift of knowing that the truth of who they are lies within the mirror of their heart.
