" 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.

" I am a HUGE fan of her work! I LOVE to read some of those silly stories with young children. I was looking for something along these lines to address diversity and culture in the classroom. Sadly, this didn't hit the mark. I had to improv along the way- it's just a bit too long for the attention span of my little ones. GREAT for about first grade though. " 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.

"Wonderful picture book to start the discussion about where we all came from and how we all managed to get to the united states and what heritage truly means. It begins with an Asian-American classroom teacher opening up her history bag and telling the story of her family's trip to America. She explains her great-grandmothers only choice to take whatever could fit in a single suitcase. The pages go on to show the different personalities of the students in the classroom and what is important to them. Each shows different cultural highlights and rhymes so that children will like it. Great, GREAT book - would use for a lesson. " said.
