   Loved this book!
It was amazing to find a book that addressed the question of where you really come from.
   From Here
A book with watercolor background adds to the magic of creating a feeling of belonging to real people. It is not a one word defined place.
   Beautiful Book !!!!
It's simply beautiful. I chose this book as a good choice for a student I was helping with her reading. This book has some amazing lessons for kids to learn because of all the complexity of our society. It is an amazing book and worth the purchase.
It is probably the best children's book I have ever read. My mom said it was almost as if she had written it herself. It was an absolute gem.
   I cry everytime I read this book to my son
If you've ever been made to feel different for how you look. It's possible that your child would be made to feel this way. It encourages pride in your heritage and family. It shows the acceptance and confidence in who you are. My 2 year old is always asking for this book.
   Beautiful book
This is a wonderful book. The story is so relevant to anyone who has ever been asked, "Where are you from?" The illustrations go along with the words.
   Sweet book
The story addresses the question of where are you from that makes children feel good.
   Perfect to teach kids about heritage!
This book is good for us to teach our children about heritage and culture. There was progress to be had in their chat about their different background. Yes, it is really a good find.
   Could't wait to read this to my son.
My son's life is going to be influenced by books and stories like these. Children need to see people who are in entertainment. I feel that my son needs to know where his dad came from. He will be able to read my stories, but others will help as well.
