Eve Bunting has written a lovely book about the immigration experience. The illustrations by Ted Lewin are beautifully executed. However, there is one wee little mistake that deserves caution. The girl in the illustration is wearing a traditional hijab. The text describes this as a dupatta. A dupatta is the shawl that is worn over the shalwar kameez by women in India. Additionally, the Bibliocommons description states the girl is Muslim. This cannot be assumed. The publishers description as well as the other critical reviews do not assume a religion.

The title is perfect, and this story really captures both the feeling of being an outsider, and how shared events bring people together without non-verbal communication. I really liked it.

This is a very wonderful story. My 6 yr. old and I discussed what it must feel like to move to new country, if you dont speak the language. How do you make friends? How do you deal with being different. I am looking forward to re-reading it to him again.
