The author creates a feeling of empathy through verbal imagery in this story about a refugee. A nice, age appropriate way to explain exclusion and how to help immigrants feel included. ( )

This book is about a little girl who moves to a new country and does not know the language. She compares her first language to a cozy blanket that keeps her warm and safe. She does not want to use her new language. Then she meets a new friend and she slowly learns the language. She begins to see the new language as a second blanket as well. ( )

I highly recommend this book. This book represented a young girl who migrated to a new country and in the book they used her "blanket" as a metaphor for her safe place. With moving to a new country this young lady did not feel like she fit in until one day another young girl helped changed that. She then found her new blanket within her new home. This book is great for 6-7-year-olds. ( )
