“Hannah Moushabeck has written a marvelous, utterly transporting story describing the gentle power of precious transmitted memory, and the wistfulness of immigrants, particularly those in exile from an occupied or altered place. Homeland does what decades of sad news stories have repeatedly failed to do for Palestine —humanize a beautiful people and place. I wish my father were alive so I could give him this book.” —Naomi Shihab Nye, award-winning author of Habibi and Sitti’s Secrets

Homeland brings a rich, beautiful, intimate picture of Palestine to life that is rarely seen in American media. The details are absolutely delectable, and the storytelling is playful, yet deeply moving perfection.” —Phoebe Wahl, author, and illustrator of Little Witch Hazel and The Little Blue House

“Like many picture books about immigration, Homeland creates a tapestry of both love and loss reinvented in a story by a granddaughter. This one, in particular, rings with truth while the drum’s heartbeat holds a family and its history together. —Jane Yolen, author of Owl Moon, Eeny Up Above, and others
