Reviews

* "Loneliness, cultural displacement, tentative friendship, and an explosion of sharing and kindness are accessible even to very young readers...An amazingly lovely import."
--Kirkus, starred review

"With its bold visual metaphors, "My Two Blankets" ingeniously captures a child's efforts to weave the old with the new."
--New York Times Book Review

"The blanket metaphor is powerful, and the way that sounds are depicted through shape and line works well."
--School Library Journal

"The illustrations, a combination of watercolor and oils, heighten the effect of the thought-provoking story. Just the right format for children to think about immigrants and friendship."
--Booklist
