Thank You, Omu! by Oge Mora
As Omu cooks her dinner, an enticing smell wafts throughout her neighborhood. The fi rst knock on her door comes from a child who asks about that delicious aroma. Omu shares her thick red stew with the grateful boy, and continues to do so with others who come calling. Though she ends up having none left for herself, one fi nal knock brings everyone back with a tasty potluck supper to say Thank You, Omu! (Little, Brown, $18.99). Author/illustrator Oge Mora presents an engaging, handsomely illustrated story of a community that comes together over a shared meal. Ages 4-8.
