Summary
A child-friendly story about the trials and triumphs of starting over in a new place while keeping family and traditions close. When Hee Juns family moves from Korea to West Virginia, he struggles to adjust to his new home. His eyes are not big and round like his classmates, and he cant understand anything the teacher says, even when she speaks s-l-o-w-l-y and loudly at him. As he lies in bed at night, the sky seems smaller and darker. But little by little Hee Jun begins to learn English words and make friends on the playground. And one day he is invited to a classmates house, where he sees a flower he knows from his garden in Korea mugunghwa, or rose of Sharon, as his friend tells him and Hee Jun is happy to bring a shoot to his grandmother to plant a "piece of home" in their new garden. Lyrical prose and lovely illustrations combine in a gentle, realistic story about finding connections in an unfamiliar world
