At the beginning of this book, I was a little skeptical, but as the story unfolded, I was hooked. The book has a decent amount of diversity without appearing to be trying too hard. The way this outsider family navigates new cultural norms and learns empathy and understanding both among sisters and for a new culture is impressive. The sibling dynamic is fairly typical without being over the top. I was glad that the mother listened to her older daughter’s opinion near the end of the story, valuing the way her child’s experience could inform her decision and help her to be sympathetic to her other daughter’s wishes. The illustrations are nicely drawn and enhance the mood of each page.
