Where Are You From?
Updated: Sep 1, 2022
We came from and belonged to one place - Heart!
A little girl often gets asked where are you from, but she has no answer for it. They ask where her mom is from and where her dad is from, and they are never happy with the answers she gives. So she seeks her wise grandpa’s help to answer the question. He always has answers for everything. Grandpa tries to help the child with philosophical explanations beyond the little girl’s understanding. Unsatisfied, the little girl asks again, where am I really from? Did grandpa give out the answer?
We picked this book for its classy cover. The illustrations are gorgeous and capture the words and emotions elegantly. We often question children from different ethnicities about where they come from. This book is an excellent read for them and others to understand the emotional aspect of being asked for something that may not always have a perfect answer. We loved the way the book answered the question at the end.
Where Are You From? is an excellent pick for young children and adults on the quest to find an answer to where they are from.
