{Synopsis} – Rashin is excited about her first visit to the beach in her family’s new home. On the way there, she remembers what beach trips were like in Iran, the beautiful Caspian Sea, the Persian music, and most of all the saffron ice cream she shared with her best friend, Azadeh. But there are wonderful things in this new place as well — a subway train, exciting music… and maybe even a new friend…!

{My thoughts} – Rashin is a sweet little girl from Iran that has recently moved to New York. This book tells the similarities and the differences between a visit to the beach in Iran and in Brooklyn. The story within the pages match nicely with it’s illustrations. I really enjoyed the story a lot and I look forward to reading it to my younger daughters.

I recommend this book for any child, because it will help to teach them cultural differences. I think that every child should learn about cultural differences. I think that this book will be a great addition to any child’s library.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
