“Rating: 1-5: (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4…
What did you like about the book? …Three end pages provide historical context for Tuan’s story….Their story is timely as floods of refugees in horrendous situations risk everything to flee current conflicts.
Anything you didn’t like about it? No.
To whom would you recommend this book? Recommend to teachers to supplement studies about the Vietnam War or current events with an example of how non-combatants can be affected by the outcome of wars.
Who should buy this book? Elementary school libraries and public libraries.”
