“A charming tale exploring themes of change, migration, and resilience told from a child’s point of view.” –Kirkus Reviews

My Favorite Memories

Written by Sepideh Sarihi
Illustrated by Julie Volk
Published by Blue Dot Kids Press

A young girl is moving to a new country, and there’s so much that she wants to bring: an aquarium, a pear tree, her best friend, the ocean. As she moves through the list of the things she loves, she comes to understand that while we cannot always carry things with us physically–maybe they can travel with us in other ways. Told with warm illustrations by an award-winning picture book illustrator, My Favorite Memories offers parents and educators a gentle but impactful way to discuss the idea of resilience along with complex life events like immigration and moving to a new home. Printed on FSC-certified paper with vegetable-based inks.
