Like a Dandelion is a poetic tribute to the bravery of immigrants and refugees, inspired by the author’s childhood experience of moving to the United States from Cambodia.
Like feathery seeds, a young girl and her mother take flight, putting down roots in an adopted country. Soon they blossom in their new home, strong and beautiful among hundreds of others just like them.
Huy Voun Lee's text is gentle and lyrical, making for an excellent storytime or bedtime read. The story is based on Huy’s own childhood experience of moving to the US as a Cambodian refugee.
Text and art work together to beautifully illustrate the passing of the seasons, and the dandelion’s growth from seed to shoot to blossom is a sunny, poignant metaphor for the resilience of immigrants and refugees.
Includes backmatter information on the history and uses of dandelions.

This children’s book hits “home” My children are grown now and are educators. I know they would’ve loved this book because of the fun facts and seeing families that resemble them and their friends. Even as adults we enjoyed reading it and I’m looking forward to more adventures of Malachi and Karelle.
Love the color and fit.
It was nice to shop with various options on diversity. My children love their book about promises. We will continue shopping for more books!
The messaging and graphics in this book are very well done! Highly recommend!
Fantastic books, illustrations are great, messaging is great. So happy you all are doing this work!
I have to speak about this book ASAP because @laurensimonepubs (Instagram) was so kind to send me a copy to review. In short, I was and am still in awe at every detail and illustration. This book has a wealth of knowledge. This book exemplifies what the adage means, “Big things come in small packages.” If you want a quick and easy way to share with your kiddo what different cultures wear, why and how, you absolutely need this book. There is no book like it! Even as an adult it was a good refresher for multi-cultural traditional and non-traditional clothing. I even learned new information as well. I implore you to get this book ASAP and share it with your class, your kiddos in your family, everyone. 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you again @laurensimonepubs for sending me this. I am incredibly grateful and have already been bragging about how truly amazing, educational, and artistic this book is. I plan to tell everyone I know about it. #LaurenSimonePublishing #ThingsWeWear #MustReadASAP #ChildrensNonFiction #BookReview #FiveStarBook #Multicultural #Diversity #ThankYou Everyone please follow @laurensimonepubs and check out the books they have and all about them on their website!

This book is so fun! Beautiful illustrations and musical story.
I like the varied range of occupations presented in the book. 4 Stars
As a Mom I love how thorough these books are about different ways to communicate, occupations, types of clothes and travel. Our favorite book was the one about types of travels. The occupations book is a little long for bedtime but a great resource and we’re reading a few pages each night. My 3 year old loves listening to these and looking at the illustrations. I love The diversity of the images.
I love this book! When I purchased it, I intended to read it to my lovely kids in the classroom. Obviously, I have to rethink this. So, Olivia Lauren's Occupations A to Z: A Guide to Jobs and Careers Book will be read and discussed via Google Meet in my Google classroom on Monday. I will try to share a snippet with you!
