Book Launch & Story Time: Michelle Sterling and Aaron Asis present When Lola Visits

Debut author, Michelle Sterling and illustrator, Aaron Asis come together to celebrate the gentle bonds of familial love that span oceans and generations with When Lola Visits, an evocative picture book brimming with the scents, tastes, and traditions that define a young girl’s summer with her grandmother.

For one young girl, summer is the season of no school, of days spent at the pool, and of picking golden limes off the trees. But summer doesn’t start until her lola—her grandmother from the Philippines—comes for her annual visit.

Summer is special. For her lola fills the house with the aroma of mango jam, funny stories of baking mishaps, and her quiet sweet singing in Tagalog. And in turn, her granddaughter brings Lola to the beach, to view fireworks at the park, and to catch fish at their lake.

When Lola visits, the whole family gathers to cook and eat and share in their happiness of another season spent together. Yet as summer transitions to fall, her lola must return home—but not without a surprise for her granddaughter to preserve their special summer a bit longer.
