Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "A story about finding refuge in a new friendship and a new home. "There's a new girl at school. She never stops looking up at the sky! She likes the stars and comets." Jeannette tells her mom about her new classmate, who also loves astronomy but seems sad. She realizes it's not easy to move to a new place. So the next day, at recess, Jeannette asks Iliana to play. At first, it's a little hard to communicate because Iliana is learning a new language. The girls have to use their hands and their drawings. But they keep trying, and, soon, Iliana tells Jeannette about her difficult journey as a refugee who had to leave her country. Then their families meet, and Iliana's parents share their story too. The girls' friendship blooms, as limitless as the sky and their imaginations. Originally published in France and brought to life with wonderfully expressive artwork, this is a book about sharing stories and finding refuge in friendship, family, and a new home."
