Blog Tour and Giveaway: Mama's Love Language


Happy Friday! I've got another fantastic giveaway and new picture book to share with you all today. 

I believe that having picture books that represent different cultures is extremely important, whether in a classroom or at home. Mama's Love Language: Sometimes Love Tastes Like Hainan Chicken Rice written by Elisa Stad is a new picture book I'm featuring today. The book is about a young girl who comes from a biracial family and is struggling to find her place in the world. I think this book would be a valuable addition to any classroom library, as it features a relatable message that many children today can appreciate.

Written by Elisa Stad

Illustrated by Ry Menson

Ages 5-10 | 31 Pages

Publisher: Ginger Lotus Press | ISBN-13: 9798988378518

Publisher’s Book Summary: Jade is a girl who lives in two worlds and, coming from a multicultural family, she’s on a quest to understand her identity and where she truly belongs.

She is trying to find her place in the world but feels different from the other kids at school. Back home, Jade’s parents have their unique approach to love and care. Sometimes Jade is embarrassed by Mama’s accent and she can’t understand why she is not just like any other mother she knows.

The real adventure unfolds when Jade starts rebelling against her mother’s traditional ways of showing love, especially through food. It’s a struggle that takes her on a path of discovery, as she learns about her family’s rich heritage and her mother’s challenging past in Vietnam and as an immigrant.

Jade then discovers that even though Mama doesn’t hug or say I love you, the healing aroma of ginger, green onions, and chicken broth does.

“Mama’s Love Language” is a heartwarming children’s book that addresses the universal theme of belonging and the beauty of cultural diversity. Through Jade’s story, children will learn that being different is not only okay but something to be celebrated, and that love can come in many shapes and forms.
