About the book:

Aiafi’s Dad is a hardworking father. He wakes up in the earliest hours of the morning and comes home late at night. He does this to ensure his family is well provided and taken care of. But Aiafi misses her father. She misses him so much that she asks her mother where he is every day. When he finds a gift from her in his lunch, Aiafi’s Dad begins to wonder whether all this time spent providing for her is taking away from his time with his daughter.

"O fea Tamā?" is a heartwarming tale that delves into the deep bond between a father and daughter while exploring the cherished Samoan values of fa'aaloalo (respect), tautua (service), and alofa (love).

This bilingual book offers readers the story in both English and Samoan, providing a rich cultural experience. Please note, the English and Samoan translations are included together and cannot be purchased separately.

How do you incorporate the Samoan traditions, cultural values, and beliefs into your books?

We do this by sharing stories from our lived experience as Pacific People. This is coupled with our teams cultural knowledge and expertise in translation and interpretation. We frame our stories in a way where young readers are able to be see themselves in stories visually and thematically.

Our bestsellers are in the English and Samoan language so a majority of the themes center around the Fa'aSamoa - the Samoan way of life, cultural identity and traditions.

After writing the copy and pairing it with illustrations, we run our translations through at least three Gagana Samoa Language Experts and Cultural Advisors.
