“It’s okay to have two homes, Salma…One that you live in, and one that lives within you.”

Danny Ramadan, a Syrian-Canadian author, wrote Salma the Syrian Chef, a picture book about newcomer Salma and her friends cooking up a dish to cheer Salma’s mother up. Both Salma and her mother miss Papa who is back in Syria. Now, in Salma Makes a Home (an early chapter book), we hear about Salma’s Papa's journey to Vancouver, BC, Canada!

This is a heart-warming and touching story about immigration and a sense of place.  Highly recommend for children ages 6-10.  Would make for a great read aloud with a ton of discussion!
