Product Description

Cartwheel has arrived in a new country, and feels the loss of all she's ever known.

She creates a safe place for herself under an ‘old' blanket made out of memories and thoughts of home.

As time goes on, Cartwheel begins to weave a ‘new' blanket, one of friendship and a renewed sense of belonging. It is different from the old blanket, but it is eventually just as warm and familiar.

    This book is wonderful for explaining the struggles that immigrants face when moving to a foreign country.
