I Wish You Knew
A timely, poignant story about what uncertainty feels like to a young girl whose father has been deported—and the empathy that can bloom when people share and listen.
A heartfelt story that explores the aftermath of deportation, I Wish You Knew celebrates the power of connection and empathy among children.
When Estrella's father has to leave because
he wasn't born here, like her,
She misses him.
And she wishes people knew the way it affects her.
At home. At school.
But a school wrapped around a hundred-year-old oak tree is the perfect place to share and listen.
Some kids miss family,
Some kids are hungry,
Some kids live in shelters.
But nobody is alone.
A story about deportation, divided families, and the importance of community in the midst of uncertainty.
