I read this when our first came out. I liked but I didn't love it. Couldn't understand why all the hype. Oh well, you can't live every book.

I get to work with a team this semester to develop curriculum for the middle schools based around this book! So, basically, I‘m getting paid to read 🤗

I‘ve heard great things about this one.

aprilpohren I just bought this for my 7th grade son who doesn't like to read, so hoping this will be a hit. 1d

TheBookHippie I loved it! 1d
SaunteringVaguelyDownwards I'm also getting paid to read for a curriculum review project! I've achieved my life's ambition--just not how I expected. 9h

I would use this book to represent the students in my classroom who have moved to a different place or know what it feels like to start over completely.

In this autobiography, Yuyi Morales shares her story of leaving her home and moving to the U.S. with her son. The text is very simple for children to understand and read along: the book offers an after note on why she came to the U.S. as well. The book uses illustrations to convey the story which can be easier for younger children to follow along and even more interesting to see real life pictures at the end!

This is a story about a man who leaves his home and family to seek better opportunities somewhere else. The illustrations really shows how hard it is to settle down somewhere else where this are different. And the illustrations are gorgeous

I loved this book because it is so relatable to when I was a child so I feel middle schoolers in particular can also really relate. The story line is about a girl who is new to a school and her hope she has for fitting in is shot down when people hear news of her homeland. I think this book is great for children as it has many lessons to be taught!
