Recensioner

"No one says anything. I know we all have rocks in our throats, and each of us is trying our best."

Kao Kalia Yang speaks Hmong with her family at home, but after seeing how English-speaking people treat her mother when she tries to communicate in English, Kao Kalia stops speaking in English.

Back matter includes an author's note and a pronunciation guide for the author's name and Hmong words and phrases used in the story.

Book for primary through intermediate. A young girl is raised in a refugee camp after the war, and she longs to know what is outside of the camp. One day her father climbs the tallest tree with her, to show her what is beyond the camp. Great book for history lessons, introducing this culture.

This book was beautifully illustrated and follows a young girl who grew up in a refugee camp. It was a story of childlike wonder and longing for more. It would be a great read-aloud and addition to a classroom library for K-2nd.

She sees how hard her mother has it trying to learn English and get around in an English world , when she doesn’t speak English. And her little act of rebellion of not speaking English lasted for decades. This book doesn’t have a happy ending, and it doesn’t tell you how to stop this behavior. It says this is me and this is how I was feeling. The way to help other children in similar situations feel seen. to feel that they’re not alone in their immigration status or their language barriers.… (mer)
