Reviews

"Slurping Soup is a must-have resource for parents, teachers and children dealing with transition. This interactive tool will assist elementary-aged children in understanding and coping with the challenges and emotions that go along with international relocations." - Tina Quick, author of The Global Nomad's Guide to University Transition, Founder, International Family Transitions, www.internationalfamilytransitions.com "As a parent of a mixed race child, it's rare to find a book that speaks to my family's experience the way Slurping Soup does." - Michael Wester, Publisher, Beijing Kids Magazine "Slurping Soup gives parents the chance to find out what our kids are feeling or thinking when transitioning to a new country or back home. Children often don't know how to communicate these 'new' feelings. It was nothing short of a miracle when this book came into our life. Enjoy this book. You won't be disappointed." - Captain and Mrs George Vance, US Coast Guard and parents of 12, 9 and 5 year old, Beijing, China and Annapolis, Maryland "Slurping Soup is an invaluable resource for expatriate families. It contains colourful observations and stories that Third Culture Kids will find engaging and meaningful. I highly recommend it!" - Dr Cheryl Smith, Clinical Psychologist, Lyon, France and mother of two Third Culture Kids, ages 10 and 12 "Whether you are about to move to another country for the first time or have always lived overseas, Slurping Soup is a valuable resource that effectively addresses the challenges of living in a new culture. The authors have uniquely combined true stories and rich illustrations with practical activities to provide readers of all ages with a much-needed resource to proactively identify and address transition challenges. This outstanding book is a must read for all families living in an international context." - Barry Dequanne, Head of School, American School of Brasilia "Relocating from China to Switzerland, Slurping Soup became THE book to discuss our family transition challenges. The bubble exercise for example was a simple but powerful way to regularly check the family temperature on the "transition" topic. My oldest daughter aged 9 at the time kept asking me to sit with her and go through some of the stories and activities. She found it extremely reassuring to see her challenges had been shared by other children. Thanks for coming up with an activity book made for families and children!" - Jasmine Keel, Senior Learning & Development Consultant, mother of three Third Culture Kids ages 10, 8 and 1.
