Here I Am, by Patti Kim, illustrated by Sonia Sanchez

Ages:5-9 yrs

Newly arrived from their faraway homeland, a boy and his family enter into the lights, noise and traffic of a busy American city. The language is unfamiliar. Food, habits, games and gestures are puzzling. The boy clings tightly to his special keepsake from home and wonders how he will find his way. How will he once again become the happy, confident kid he used to be? Walk in his shoes as he takes the first tentative steps toward discovering joy in his new world. An emotional wordless story of a child’s adjustment to a new life in America.
