Little Readers: Migrant by Maxine Trottier

Migrant by Maxine Trottier is a picture book for young children. It tells the story of a migrant family from the perspective of its youngest member. She feels like a bird, flying north for the spring and south every fall. She feels like a jackrabbit living in an abandoned burrow (the housing of previous migrants).

Interestingly, the end notes indicate that the story concerns German Mennonites, traveling between Mexico and Canada for work.
