I call her “Mom” in public, but that’s not her REAL name.
It’s Mutti, Mamma, Mummy, Maman.
Just “Mom” is not the same.
When your Mom is from another country, your life might be a little different from your friends’. Maybe your Mom speaks with an accent, fills your lunch with funny foods, or wears strange clothes. Perhaps she doesn’t look like you or she sings funny songs. But as all kids with foreign Moms know, what makes their Moms different is also what makes them the best.
Written by daughter of a foreign Mom Julianne Moore and illustrated by foreign Mom Meilo So, this heartwarming story shows readers young and old that no matter where she’s from, every Mom speaks the same language: love.
