Here I Am

Publisher: Curious Fox

A young boy arrives in a strange land where he doesn't understand the language or the customs. The weather is cold and wet and he misses his home. Gradually he begins to make new friends and finds that not everything in the new country disagreeable. He eventually settles into his new life and feels comfortable in his new home.

Patti Kim wrote this story to show how she felt when she came to live in America with her mother and father. She shows how scary and how exciting the new world was. The word-less book deals with the challenges of leaving a beloved home and coming to terms with the big changes you face in your new world. The illustrations are used to show the feelings of the characters. If you enjoyed Shaun Tan's Arrival you'll love Here I am.
