Happy After All (Bilingual Multicultural Book) - Ukrainian/English
Happy After All is a delightful read. The story of a newcomer missing her home
country will help students grow empathy and knowledge of another
culture. The words and pictures are authentic and will surely touch the
hearts of children experiencing a big move like this or knowing someone
who has. We glimpse the beauty and warmth of the character's original
home and still feel the hope for her new beginning. It is a welcome
addition to all classrooms that value diversity.
Happy After All provides a uniquely profound glimpse of how the characters are processing their feelings of longing, angst, and fears when arriving in a new country. This emotional connection can facilitate meaningful classroom conversations about facing life's challenges. Happy After All also showcases the main character's native customs and traditions, giving readers an opportunity to acquire new cultural perspectives and insights. I highly recommend Happy After All for all types of classroom settings.
This book could be used as a tool to encourage a child that happiness awaits them in their new home. It could also help inspire empathy in children with a classmate who has recently moved from another country.
