Summary
"My Words Flew Away Like Birds is both a poignant and heartening story about the experience of a child who moves to a new country. Everything feels new and strange to her, and though she has learned some of the language, when she tries to speak, all her words fly away. In the end, our heroine finds she doesn't need a lot of words to make a new friend. It is a story of finding a sense of belonging in a new place, resilience, and human connection. An utterly charming and sensitive portrayal of a child's immigrant experience."--
