I wanted to share this book with you. I started reading it to preview it for my 10 year old. He is moving through his current book quickly and I thought this might be a good second read for this unit. I was disappointed when I opened it because it seemed written in an odd manner. As it turns out, it was a lovely read. I ended up reading the entire book in one night. There are so many lessons in this book. It is the story of a 10 year old girl who had to flee Vietnam with her family to America. Life in Vietnam after the Vietnam war is described in detail (from a child’s viewpoint) as well as the process of leaving her home and trying to integrate into American society. Now I cannot decide it I want to read it aloud next to both kids or assign it to my son only. 🤔
