Aekyung’s Dream by Min Paek

A small story of a girl who wakes up in America wondering what language the birds are singing in. She faces prejudices and misunderstanding because she doesn't speak English well. She overcomes this by finding strength in her Korean history, and realizes the birds sing in both languages.
