For Ages
3 to 7

An empowering story about a Chinese American girl who proudly translates for her mom, helping her to demonstrate her skill as a seamstress on Career Day at school.

It will soon be Career Day at Zia’s school and she cannot wait for Mama to tell her classmates all about her job as a seamstress and about the beautiful dresses she sews. There are just two problems: Mama cannot take time off from work and she also cannot speak English fluently. Zia is determined, however, and hatches a plan.

When Career Day arrives, we meet a vet, a stay-at-home dad, and more. And when Mama finally makes her debut, Zia is the proudest kid in class. Everyone loves career day, but most of all, Zia.
