When the Cousins Came

(2) K-3 Lila's happy when her visiting city cousins, Rosie and Takeo, do her hair and play with her outside. But Lila starts to feel left out when she sees her cousins using chopsticks better than she can. While the text never mentions it, Lila's ethnic identity appears to be different from that of her cousins. With vibrant mixed-media collages, this is a quiet story of how people from different backgrounds and cultures can learn from each other.
