Reviews

Gibbon's brightly colored illustrations look fresh and vivid. A supportive picture book for immigrants and an empathetic read-aloud choice for classroom discussion.-- "Booklist"
This emotionally resonant and playfully illustrated picture book reveals the many ways our personal stories of home can unite and enrich a community. ... Any child who has experienced the bitter sweet journey of moving far from home will find a heartwarming sense of belonging, as they discover how they have been and always will be, a part of the Homesick Club.-- "Mighty Village"
