About the Book

On an uneven dirt road, a child rides home, guided by the tall palm tree by his house. In Bangladesh, it is the boy’s beacon of happiness and safety. Everyone in the land admires the palm tree. Its sugary sap is a delightful nighttime treat for animals, and it gives the gift of shade.

My House by the Tall Palm Tree will help American parents of Bangladeshi descent connect their children with their heritage through words and pictures. The vivid illustrations depict the different lifestyles in America and in Bangladesh.

It’s time to come home, even just in the imagination, to the house by the big palm tree.
