Where Am I From?

Neha has lived in many places around the world. She loves each of those places, but when someone in her new school asks her where she is from, she does not know what to say. She has lived in so many places, and she loves them all, how can she choose?
Neha’s character is a part of many American households. It is the story of a perceptive and sensitive young child caught between two or more cultures, and of parents trying to help her craft an identity that is whole and complete.
This book touches on issues not typically addressed in picture books, and fills an important void in children’s literature for this group of children who are particularly vulnerable to feeling marginalized and different.
ABOUT KIDZBELONG BOOKS
Kidzbelong books have been the winner of 2 Purple Dragonfly awards in 2016
These books are for little boys and little girls whose mummies and daddies grew up in a different country than theirs.
KidzBelong Books helps grown ups share stories with little ones about growing up! Little ones ask lots of smart questions, our books help answering them. Why does my food look different from what my friends bring? Why is my skin colour different? Why is the God I pray to look different? Our mission is to help little ones understand that these differences are what makes them special.
We want to share with kids the simple message that no matter where they are growing up, and no matter where their parents grew up, they are loved. Sometimes it’s hard for little ones to tell their friends (and themselves) why they and their parents do certain things differently. We want to help them find the answers. Growing up, no matter where you grow up, is an exciting, confusing and crazy journey! We would love to show kids that they are not alone!
