We have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this book as it's been backordered for some time! A gorgeous tale of familial bonds and new experiences, all told through the lens of a young immigrant girl. 

A picture book about a young immigrant who stays connected to her grandmother through communication and love.

With tender language and striking art, I Dream of Popo follows a young girl as she and her family emigrate from Taiwan to San Diego, leaving behind the narrator's maternal grandmother, Popo.

The story touches on learning a new language, acclimating to a new home, and the changing relationship the child maintains with her beloved Popo even when they are apart. Over time, their visits are fleeting, but their love is ever true and strong.

This delicate, emotionally rich picture book celebrates a special connection that crosses time zones and oceans as Popo and her granddaughter hold each other in their hearts forever.
