Papa Brings Me The World
Papa Brings Me the World by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw (2020)
Most parents drive a car or ride a bus or train to work - but not Lulu’s papa. He navigates mountains, deserts, and oceans, each time returning home with pockets full of treasures. There’s an ancient calculator from China, a musical mbira from Zimbabwe, and a special game from Sumatra. But the best treasures are special stories Papa tells when he comes home - tales of playing peekaboo with rare birds in the Andes and befriending dragons in the Irish Sea.
This long-distance love story between parent and child celebrates inclusivity, imagination, and the richness of global cultures.
