A heartwarming grandmother-granddaughter story about language, love, and the immigrant experience.

Popo—who doesn’t speak any English—is always there for Meimei whenever she needs an extra hand. They speak Mandarin Chinese at home, and Meimei picks up new words every day.

Today, Meimei feels like she can’t do anything without Popo. But, in the face of a language barrier, maybe there’s a way Meimei can help Popo, too. Here is a heartwarming and poignant intergenerational story touching on themes of dependence and independence that is about language, love, and the fact that actions ultimately speak loudest of all.


  • "This sweet story offers an introduction to the immigrant experience while celebrating the love between a grandparent and a grandchild.... A moving tribute to the tender moments found in a bilingual, multigenerational household."
