Description

See below for English description.

Sami vient d’arriver dans un nouveau pays et il est étonné de voir la quantité de neige qui s’accumule au sol! Joy, sa nouvelle voisine, ne parle pas la même langue que lui, mais cela ne l’empêche pas de communiquer avec le jeune garçon… Après tout, elle sait à quel point cela peut être intimidant de se retrouver dans un nouveau pays. Pourra-t-elle aider son nouvel ami à surmonter ses craintes?

Une histoire sans texte, qui encouragera les enfants à vaincre leurs peurs et à se faire des amis!

 

Sami has left his country and just arrived in a new one. There’s a lot of snow in this new place! His neighbour, Joy, doesn’t speak his language, but that doesn’t stop them from connecting. It can be intimidating being in a new land. Can Joy help Sami overcome his fears?

This heartwarming, wordless picture book is a beautiful tale of finding friendship and facing fears.

Original title: Snow Doves
