Aiafi, the main character of this story wakes up most days without seeing her Dad. Aiafi's father leaves home for work long before she wakes up. In this story, Aiafi learns why her Dad works so much and gets the answer to her question, 'Where is Dad' / 'O fea Tamā.'
'O fea Tamā' is a classic Samoan story of our fathers who work hard, who work long hours, who start work early in the morning or start work late at night. This book honors our lived experience of this and journeys with Aiafi as she understands this concept. We pray this story resonates with you and helps create conversations within your home or school.
