Two Mrs. Gibsons

Illustrated by

This is the story of two Mrs. Gibsons, a tall African American woman from Tennessee, and a petite Japanese woman from Gifu. While there were many differences in the way they dressed, cooked, and expressed their feelings, the two Mrs. Gibsons shared something much more important — they both loved young Toyomi and her father. Based on author Toyomi Igus' childhood, this heartwarming story about her mother and grandmother is truly a multicultural celebration in the truest sense.
