Bestselling author and award-winning actress Julianne Moore pays homage to all the Muttis, Mammas, and Mamans who are from another country.
A foreign mom may eat, speak, and dress differently than other moms—
she may wear special clothes for holidays, twist hair in strange old-fashioned braids, and cook recipes passed down from grandma. Such a mom may
be different than other moms, but...she is also clearly the best. Vividly
illustrated by Meilo So, this funny and heartwarming picture book about
growing up in multiple cultures celebrates the diverse world in which we live.
Julianne Moore was inspired
to write My Mom Is a Foreigner
in memory of her own foreign mom. Moore is the bestselling author of the Freckleface Strawberry series. She is also an
award-winning actress and artist ambassador for Save the Children. She lives in New York City with her husband and two children.
Meilo So is the esteemed illustrator of Water Sings Blue. She was born in Hong Kong and now lives in the Shetland Islands with her husband and daughter. Meilo So is herself a foreign mom.
