Papa Brings Me the World

$32.99

$32.99

When you keep your eyes and heart wide open, new friends await you wherever you go.

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 special games from Sumatra. But the best treasures are special stories Papa tells when he comes home—tales of playing peek a boo with rare birds in the Andes and riding dragons in the Irish Sea.

This long-distance love story between parent and child celebrates inclusivity, imagination, and the richness of global cultures. For fans of The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson and Drawn Together.
