Amoya's Big Move tells the story of a young girl on the day she and her family give away the last of their belongings and prepare to leave their home country of Jamaica for Chicago. The little things, such as her favorite ice cream, pop up in her memory as she realizes that this treat might not be available where she is going. This is the perfect story for families who have left their home countries and those who want to learn more about this experience.
