Jacques The Egg The Forest The Great Subway Map The Little Barbarian The Moon Keeper The Penguin Who Was Cold The Stone Age The Truth About my Unbelievable School The Truth About My Unbelievable Summer The World Belongs to You The Worried Whippet The Unforgettable Party The Very Hungry Plant Thingamabob Toute Une Vie Pour Apprendre Veggies! Buku ini mengambarkan seorang anak yang dibawa jauh dari tanah kelahirannya [yang dianggap sangat primintif oleh org2 yg ngebawanya] untuk di didik jadi berbudaya [tuh kan poskolonial banget ya. Jennifer Uman and Valerio Vidali discovered a mutual interest in this story and overcame language obstacles with the help of translators. tapi meskipun sudah dididik untuk jadi bagian mereka tp si anak ngerasa ttp not quite, ia ttp ngerasa ini bukanlah rumahnya.

This is made stronger when the boy is described as only missing the flora and fauna of his native land with no mention of the people! Living on a “faraway island” a boy named Orundellico climbs the tallest trees, views the stars, listens to the ocean and wonders what’s “on the other side.The people who took him back to their land introduced him to so many new things and changed his style and his life in so many ways. Maybe no written record exists of their care, but by not presenting the possibility of such, a young child might conclude that they were not "good" parents.

Let it be a spark that opens up discussions on other topics such as the challenges and hardships assimilating to a culture, the tragedy of being separated from one's home and family- how about the parents/family? When he goes back to his land and back to his people, he immediately sheds what he was wearing and goes back to his life on the island completely unchanged from everything that he has seen in the land that is not his own. Jemmy always felt smaller than everything and felt that everything was almost like his life on the island.I loved the illustrations in this book; my 2yo did, took and had fun pointing out Jemmy on each page. Another activity that I would do with students would be to highlight geography and how the world trades and interacts with each other by the spread of culture. I know that this is a book for children, and I appreciate that the stories of lesser-known figures in history are being told, but I can’t co-sign a book that presents the story of white men taking a child away from his parents and parading him around England like a pet or a side show, as a morally neutral event.
