Like a Dandelion

A simple book that uses powerful analogies to highlight what immigrants see and experience as they build a new life in a new country, this colourful picture book will engage young readers as they consider topics of immigration, acceptance, and home while following the journey of a mother and daughter as they settle into a new place. In a primary classroom, the story may inspire discussions about what it may be like to adapt to a new environment and prompt students to reflect on their own experiences when they had to move to a new place, learn new rules or make new friends. Students may be encouraged to consider and write about how they got through these experiences and how they overcame their respective challenges.
