My Two Blankets by Irena Kobald

My Two Blankets by Irena Kobald is a touching picture book that reinforces the themes of acceptance, belonging, friendship and immigration.

Cartwheel is an immigrant who moves from a war-torn land to a new country with her aunt. She struggles to adjust to many aspects of her new home.

“Nobody spoke like I did. When I went out, it was like standing under a waterfall of strange sounds. The waterfall was cold. It made me feel alone. I felt like I wasn’t me anymore.” 

With help from a new friend her transition to fit in and feel more at home becomes smoother.
