Booklist - 02/15/2023 Mia introduces herself and Mama and then announces that they have moved into a house with a yard and a mango tree. Though she misses her old friends, every day she enjoys checking out the green mangoes on the tree, hoping they will ripen. And one day, a mango turns red and yellow. Slowly, the other green fruits on the tree begin to ripen, too. Mama fixes mango recipes, and Mia eats many mangoes, but they can’t keep pace with the tree’s abundance. Mama challenges Mia to find a solution, and she does. They invite their new neighbors to come and pick their own mangoes. Soon, their yard is full of people picking fruit, talking, and making new friends. Throughout Mia’s inviting first-person narrative, she shares her latest favorite facts, from “We have a house” to “There’s no such thing as too many mangoes.” With simplified forms and bold colors, the appealing illustrations capture Mia’s impatience with the mangoes, her occasional loneliness, and her warm relationship with Mama. A satisfying picture book that reads aloud well. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
