A joyful tribute to multilingualism that says Mother and Father in 18 different languages – from Japanese to Kikuyu, Spanish to Finnish, Tulu to Tagalog... In addictive rhythm, just waiting to be read aloud, the text reflects amazing similarities across far-flung languages, while the illustrations capture the multi-ethnic, multicultural spirit with sensitivity and skill. Shifting seamlessly between landscapes and milieus, the cameos of simple moments between parents and children beautifully acknowledge commonalities and differences.

A book that must be owned

I think what this book leaves you with is a feeling of communion, of being one like others and of being together in song. The lyrical quality of the text demands a rhythm from the reader that will emerge naturally and compel both reader and listener to get immersed in the theme of parental nomenclature. Goodbooks.in

A welcome gift!

Sandhya Rao has the key to children's hearts like few others and Tulika has their hands on today's children's pulse. With the multicultural world we live in, O O is such a welcome gift... Saffron Tree
