Migrant Picture Book By An Award Winning Canadian Author

This is a wonderful picture book written by an award-winning author and illustrator about migrant workers. This is a very important topic as so many kids don’t realize what a difficult life migrant workers really have. Most of them are separated from family and friends, and their own culture. They live away from their families for months at a time. They feel like strangers in a foreign land. They look different from everyone when they go out to the shopping center. They live in run-down housing.

This book will make it easier for kids of all ages to understand a migrant worker’s reality. And this is really a great thing given our over-consumptive culture. Kids need to have an appreciation of how hard certain cultures and people have it.

The illustrations in this book are absolutely breathtaking. Some of the illustrations seem to leap right off the page. The illustrator, Isabelle Arsenault, has won an impressive number of awards and international recognition, including the Grand Prix for Illustration six years running in Quebec. Kudos to Isabelle and Maxine for a wonderful book.
