Product Details


★ “[A] touching portrait of a family’s love for one another. . . . Zhuang’s artwork is as warm and inviting as her story. Her watercolor, crayon and colored pencil illustrations burst with detail, allowing for new discoveries with each read.”BookPage, Starred Review

“Inspired by the author’s own childhood experiences, the story beautifully reflects how it feels to relocate to a completely different country and still try to feel at home.”—The Horn Book

“Colored pencil, crayon, and watercolor applied in a personal sketchbook style communicate the feel of New York City sights and sounds, transporting the protagonist into rainbow dreams and making the stylized city illustrations feel achingly real.”—Publishers Weekly
“[The] story touches on themes that will resonate with many readers—exploration, immigration, family, childhood. . . . The vibrant ­illustrations convey the hustle and bustle of the city, where there is always something intriguing to look at. . . . A celebration of family, heritage, and home, this book is a worthy addition to any ­collection.”—School Library Journal

“This engaging picture book is perfect for storytimes centered on family traditions or the comfort of familiar food.”—Booklist
“Watercolor textures and comforting colors transform an everyday activity into a joyful adventure. . . . The simple narrative sparkles with gentle humor and reassuring imagery. This day-in-the-life story is a celebration of food as connection, comfort, and inspiration and a way to honor our heritage as we walk into the future.”—Kirkus Reviews
