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.

It contains colourful observations and stories that Third Culture Kids will find engaging and meaningful. I highly recommend it!

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.
