A little girl and her mother walk home from school on a snowy winter day.
"So much snow," says Ma. "So monochromatic."
"Mono crow what?" her daughter replies.
Ma misses the sun, warmth and colors of their faraway homeland, but her daughter sees magic in everything -- the clouds in the winter sky, the "firework" display when she throws an armful of snow into the air, making snow angels, tasting snowflakes. And in the end, her joy is contagious. Home is where family is, after all.
This gently layered, beautifully illustrated story that unfolds as a conversation between a mother and daughter will resonate with readers young and old.
