Malaika’s Winter Carnival by author Nadia L. Hohn and illustrator Irene Luxbacher

Age Range: 3 – 7 years

Publisher: Groundwood Books

Publication Date: September 5, 2017

In this picture book, a young girl named Malaika shows resilience when her mother marries, not only giving her a stepfather and stepsister to live with but also thrusting her into a new country with a culture much different from the one she has lived in. My Book Eyes loves details from the text and illustrations that beautifully depict cultural differences. A very relatable story. In some ways all of us have experienced the sentiment of loss for people, places or things due to circumstances beyond our control and have learned to adapt.
