It all starts with the world seen from the POV of a nine-old-months baby. And through this baby, we discovered how much she loves her mother. We learn with her about her heritage and the language her ancestors used. In this fantastical world, the baby learns about the world and process it in a beautiful way.
The author uses the book not only to honor and praise all mothers but also bring backs her African roots, and for a person who comes from a great-grandma brought as a slave from Africa, this book touches my heart.
This book is the proof that you don't need 500 pages to create emotions or make your reader feel something. In less than 30 pages your heart will be touched.
