" Most of us in America come from somewhere else and this book does a great job helping children to understand that. In the back of the book there's a pop up suitcase. It made me wonder what I would take to a new country if all I could take was what fit in a suitcase. This certainly is a book that can get kids thinking. " said.

" Perfect for my 2nd grade teachers' immigration unit. They have a coloring/drawing activity about packing a case. " said.

" Cute, as others have said, teachable, not great for storytimes, nor for public collections-we had to carefully cut out and glue in the suitcase. " said.

" I will be using this book as a precursor to the Keene International Festival. Refugees, Immigrants, Acceptance " said.

" Woods adored this book and asked for it every night. I wasn't as crazy about it, but dutifully read it. I wish I knew what he loved most about it. If you ask him, he would probably say the box at the end. I enjoyed the diversity present in the children represented (yay!) and the choices each one made for their suitcase. A lovely and thought provoking story for all ages. " said.

" Ages- 4-8 yearsGenre- Realistic FictionDate Read- 10/30/17Unique Feature-This is a great book to use to talk about family history and individuality! The unique feature of this book is how it has built in engagement questions and allows for text to self and text to world connections. The pop out suitcase at the end is a great way to continue the lesson and extend student thinking! " said.

" This was a nice book for starting conversations about family history or immigrant experiences. I love the detailed illustrations that make each character's home reflect their personality and family heritage in clear, distinct ways. I particularly liked the coffee table book title "Encyclopedia of Wood Swatches" in one child's home. " said.

"An intriguing story asking if you were to immigrate to a new country and could only take what would fit in a suitcase, what would you take.

A teacher shared with her class that her great-grandmother came on a boat with just a suitcase. She shared what her great-grandmother brought, then she asked the students what they would bring if they left. We visit the rooms of eight children to see what they would take, what they would leave, and why.

Written in rhyme, the author Jamie Lee Curtis gets philosophical saying, who you are it isn’t just what you’ve got, but part what you learn and part what you’re taught. A thinker of a book. Something both child and parent can discuss.
" said.
