Book: When I Get Older: The Story Behind “Wavin’ Flag”, by K’naan, illustrated by Rudy Gutierrez, Tundra Books

Somali-Canadian musician K’naan’s first children’s book tells the inspirational story of his immigration to Canada to escape the Somali War. K’naan uses accessible yet poetic language to draw in young readers, exploring his adjustment to Canada and how music kept him connected to his family. Gutierrez’s artwork powerfully conveys a new immigrant’s sense of alienation. – Elizabeth Kiy

Includes sheet music to “Wavin’ Flag”. $19.99. At booksellers everywhere.
