Krit Dreams of Dragon Fruit: A Story of Leaving and Finding Home

We rated this book:


Krit loves his home and where he lives. Krit and his dog, Mu, run through the market place with friends and past the tree with the statue of the Buddha. Thailand is beautiful and warm, and the trees are full of yummy fruits to eat. One day Krit finds out he and his mother are moving to the United States. Krit is very unhappy to move to Chicago in the United States. Chicago is not warm, the trees are covered in snow, and the city is filled with smog. Krit is not allowed to bring his dog, Mu, in the market places or in any of the buildings in the city. Krit wishes he could go home. Krit’s mother tells him of a Buddist teaching, which is the idea of happiness can’t be found by avoiding change but that we are already home and we just don’t always know it. I think this is a great book for readers like me, who want to know more about a different religion, and its practices and traditions. The beautiful, colorful illustrations show how one’s outlook on change can change how they feel about the world around them.
