Inspired by the subtle yet unique differences in the notion of love between American and Vietnamese culture, Where Thuong Keeps Love is a beautiful exploration of the nonverbal ways love is held and stored in every part of the body.
A young Vietnamese girl tries to figure out where to keep her love for her parents. In her head where she thinks happy thoughts? Or in her mouth where she says special words? She decides to ask her friends at school and comes to realize that love is not limited to any one expression. There are many ways to love!
A sweet story for families, this book teaches young kids different parts of the body while showing different ways love and affection can be expressed quietly yet still clearly and beautifully. Included at the back is a note from the author about Vietnamese culture's perspective on love and a glossary for Vietnamese words used in the story.
