Product Details


“This beautiful story of love, resilience, and family will appeal to readers of all ages.” STARRED REVIEW, School Library Journal

“[A] heartening reminder to hold on to our inherited seeds wherever we go, allowing them to bloom in all the places we come to call home.” STARRED REVIEW, Quill and Quire

“Chen captures the beauty of both settings and the emotions of the main characters in a series of colorful, expressive gouache paintings. Lee writes with sensitivity for both the child and the mother. An encouraging picture book, particularly for other children of immigrants.” —Booklist

“An endearing tale about the importance of fostering love and connection—no matter where home is.” —Kirkus Reviews

“[A] tender familial narrative. . . . Lee’s lovable characters, portrayed with pale skin and dark hair, organically introduce the natural world into the story line, and Chen’s digitally edited gouache illustrations depict the impact of getting to know its diversity.” —Publishers Weekly

“[A] delicately told and sensitive story that revolves around an evolving mother-daughter relationship through which it explores two complementary themes that pertain to the experience of immigration.” —Canadian Review of Materials
