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.
