The author is a professor of language education and a specialist in multilingualism in kindergartens. In this picture book she conveys brilliantly what it is like for Mina to start at a new kindergarten where she doesn’t understand the language. The illustrations interweave seamlessly with the story, becoming more and more colourful as Mina’s ability to communicate and her sense of belonging grow.
