Edited by Emily Hearn and Marywinn Milne.
Published by Second Story Press, 2007.


What is it like to leave home and arrive in a place where everything is new: language, weather, customs, and people? Every year, families from around the world leave their homes to start a new life in Canada, and they each have a story. In Our New Home, children use their writing and artwork to share these stories with us. They have come from countries as diverse as China and India, Russia and Ghana, Malaysia and Argentina, Germany and Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Vietnam, the Philippines and Somalia. The stories, poems, and pictures in Our New Home tell of the fear and sadness, the excitement and challenge of children and their families moving to another world and forging a new sense of self in a new land.

About the editors: Emily Hearn has worked for the National Film Board, written programs for CBC radio and television, and has written several children's books. Marywinn Milne is a retired teacher who taught primary grades for more than thirty years with the Toronto District School Board and also worked as an ESL teacher and a librarian. She was nominated for the Award of Excellence by the Ontario School Library Association.

This book is intended for ages 11 and under.
