Stories of Little and Big Blossoms addresses feelings such as being a stranger to move to a new country or the pain of losing a loved one, focusing on children's perspective. There is, for example, the little Elham from Iran, who once again has to start with her family in a new place, and for whom everything is alien in the new city: the streets, the houses, the playground. At school she feels marginalised and insecure and finds it difficult to make new friends.

Shirin Azari processes in Stories of Little and Big Blossoms her own childhood and adolescent years. In 1996, she escaped overnight, without being able to say goodbye to family and friends, with her parents and her brother from Iran to Germany. She attended eleven different schools there and suffered from never living in a permanent place. The sense of insecurity and restlessness in the life of Shirin Azari lived like a thread, until she began to capture her insights in children's stories. The experiences of Elham, Jonathan or Aylin, illustrated by the author with delicate, poetic drawings, reflect her experience of never having taken root in one place and calls for our openness and courage.
