A Piece of Home

51rso0q1lfl-_sx411_bo1204203200_A Piece of Home was written by Jeri Watts and illustrated by Hyeon Yum. It was published by Candlewick Press in 2016.

The jacket copy says this picture book is about adjusting and starting over. I can see that. But it is also about diversity and kindness.

 

Hee Jun and his family move from Korea to West Virginia in the U.S. The story follows the children and their Grandmother as they slowly learn a new language, make friends and find ways to fit into a new culture.

It’s a sweet story with an unexpected vehicle that enables the children and Grandmother to move from loneliness and sadness to happiness in their new world.

A story that might help “new” children find their way to adjusting to new surroundings, too.

I'm in a new phase of my life. And I'm enjoying the journey and the challenges that go with it. I love being Mama, Meme, writer, friend, sister and encourager. I pray that in all of these roles I show Jesus to the people around me.
