JUVENILE FICTION / Social Themes / Emigration & Immigration
In this diverse picture book, a young immigrant from South Korea finds community and friendship in an apartment house filled with other newly arrived kids.

When Jae looks out the window of his new home, he wishes he could still see his old village, his old house, and his old friends. But his new apartment feels empty and nothing outside is familiar. Jae just arrived from South Korea and doesn’t even speak the new language. 
 
Yet, making friends is the same wherever you go and he soon meets a girl with a colorful bird perched on her shoulder. Rosa knows just how Jae feels and the two become fast friends. Not only does Rosa show Jae his new neighborhood but she shows him how his imagination can bring back memories of his old home.  Then Rosa leaves unexpectedly one night but leaves her parrot for Jae. He thinks about the song that Rosa would sing: “When I fly away, my heart stays here.” And when Jae meets two other newly arrived kids, he teaches them Rosa’s song and becomes their guide to this new world.

From the creators of the highly acclaimed The Paper Kingdom, comes a new book about the importance of community and demonstrates how a simple act of kindness can be passed along to others.

Same successful pair: The Paper Kingdom received starred reviews and high praise. This new collaboration is equally captivating and timely and it will match that success.

#WENEEDDIVERSEBOOKS: This story is based on an incident from the author’s childhood as the daughter of immigrants.

Fills a Need: True-to-life picture books showing working class families, such as The Paper Kingdom and Milo Imagines the World, from an AAPI author.

A window into another culture: Readers will empathize with the challenge of being a newly arrived immigrant.

★ "Striking and raw…. Readers will share the sadness of Jae's loss, but only after seeing Rosa and Jae's joyful playing—a happiness that's distinct to childhood." —Booklist, starred review
