Book:   Thank you, Omu! / ¡Gracias, Omu! By Oge Mora + Super Blue Omu by Njideka Akunyili Crosby 

Everyone in the neighborhood dreams of a taste of Omu's delicious stew! One by one, they follow their noses toward the scrumptious scent. And one by one, Omu offers a portion of her meal. Soon the pot is empty. Has she been so generous that she has nothing left for herself? 

- Mora, Oge. Thank you, Omu! Little, Brown Books for Young Readers; Illustrated edition (October 2, 2018)
