Praise

"Rim, who based this fable on her parents' experience immigrating to the U.S. from South Korea, makes Chee-Kee's isolation touching and profound."—Publishers Weekly
"[Rim] creates a whimsical world where bears in every shape, color and size live happily together. A cute take on the immigrant experience that will appeal to young readers who themselves feel different."—Kirkus Reviews
"A simple, gentle selection that works as a good conversation starter to nurture empathy and encourage inclusion and a sense of community."—School Library Journal
