{Here I Am: Patti Kim}

{Here I Am: Patti Kim}

{Synopsis} – Newly arrived from their faraway homeland, a boy and his family enter into the lights, noise, and traffic of a busy American city. The language is unfamiliar. Food, habits, games, and gestures are puzzling. They boy clings tightly to his special keepsake from home and wonders how he will find his way. How will he once again become the happy, confident kid he used to be? Walk in his shoes as he takes the first tentative steps toward discovering joy in his new world.

{My thoughts} – This book is remarkably illustrated. It has a lot of images placed together on one page. It is suppose to show the journey the author had traveled with his family when they had moved from one place to another. However, this book has unlimited possibilities for stories. Due to it not having words it gives the reader the option to make up their own story based on the images on the pages. These kind of books are what I call thinking books, because they cause the reader to think about the images and then tell a story based on how they perceive them. It is a very nice book, very nice indeed.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
