A child-friendly story about the trials and triumphs of starting over in a new place while keeping family and traditions close.When Hee Jun's family moves from Korea to West Virginia, he struggles to adjust to his new home. His eyes are not big and round like his classmates', and he can't understand anything the teacher says, even when she speaks s-l-o-w-l-y and loudly at him. As he lies in bed at night, the sky seems smaller and darker. But little by little Hee Jun begins to learn English words and make friends on the playground. And one day he is invited to a classmate's house, where he sees a flower he knows from his garden in Korea - mugunghwa, or rose of Sharon, as his friend tells him - and Hee Jun is happy to bring a shoot to his grandmother to plant a "piece of home" in their new garden. Lyrical prose and lovely illustrations combine in a gentle, realistic story about finding connections in an unfamiliar world.… (mer)

This book is about a boy named Hee Jun who migrates from Korea to West Virginia. This is a difficult for him because he has a language barrier and he doesn't feel like he fits in. Weeks go by and he starts to slowly but surely speak english words he later gets a play date. During this playdate he discovers a flower that he had recently seen in Korea and takes it home. This was a small connection for him that reminded him of home. This book is great for ELL students and also an eye opener for American students on how hard coming to America can be and adjusting. I enjoyed this book. ( )

The perfect book for kindergarten to 3rd graders. This book shows readers about new students coming to their school and how it may take the student time to adjust. This character is coming from a whole other country and it is going to be hard to learn a new language and how things are done differently. We need to treat each other kindly and do what we can to help others feel comfortable no matter where they come from. This can be used in any classroom and especially if you are getting a new student so students can get a little perspective. ( )

This story is told from the main character, Hee Jun's, point of view as a young girl from Korea. Hee Jun and her family immigrate to West Virginia from Korea, where she experiences difficulties socially and physically. She faces struggles with her appearance in comparison to her peers around her, as well as adjusting to the English language and life styles that her peers experience. At first, she has a hard time finding similarities between herself and her peers, as well as Korean culture and American culture, but eventually she finds them on her own. Not only is Hee Jun feeling like an outsider, her sister as well. This book is great when talking about diversity in traditions, life styles, and experiences of cultures, as well as being the new student in a new school. I think this a beneficial book for teaching students how to be accepting of others differences and how to always be welcoming to new students in school and in all situations of life. ( )

This book tells of the rough transition of Hee Jun's life from Korea to West Virginia. He goes from being an ordinary child in Korea to one who is considered quite different in America, not only in his appearance, but also in culture. Anyone who has ever been homesick can relate to Hee Jun's nostalgia for his home, far far away. He has a hard time adjusting to the new language sounds, and customs that the children have, but he eventually begins to see some similarities in the way things are done in America as well as Korea. This is a great book to teach children kindness and the act of welcoming anybody they may consider new or an outsider. I also particularly like how this book recounts how Hee Jun's sister is also having some difficulty adjusting, however, her difficulties are expressed outwardly in behavior problems. This exemplifies that everybody has a different reaction to a situation, and some may handle things differently than others. ( )

This story is about a Korean family adjusting to their new life in the United States. The family learns to adjust to their new culture and keep a bit of Korea with them. This book would be great for introducing different cultures, immigration and diversity. ( )
