                                Jaime Lo, Small and Shy
| 7 min

In this animated short, Jaime Lo's father is sent to Hong Kong for a year-long work assignment. A shy Chinese-Canadian girl, Jaime Lo must use her creativity to cope with his absence. This story offers us a lighthearted glimpse into a common dilemma that many immigrant families face, where one parent must work overseas in order to provide for the rest of the family back home.

Part of the Talespinners collection, which uses vibrant animation to bring popular children’s stories from a wide range of cultural communities to the screen.

    This is really beautiful. The illustrations are perfect. The narration got a little tedious at times, but it's okay felt like someone was reading out a story. Great!
