Tamika loves her grandfather who has so many facial expressions. Tamika’s grandfather was an actor who does a play. As Tamika went to see her grandfather rehearsing to the play, Tamika finds out there are more expressions that grandfather can do!
I was so in love with this book. There are still not enough children’s book out there that depicts children of various culture, and I think this book is perfect for that. Since this book was published in 1996, I think it really was the great change in diversity in children’s literature. Also the illustration very realistic, and makes this story more beautiful. I think the illustration complete this story. This book would be great for children in age of preschool, to learn about diversity and feel emotion of family love.
