Shows the struggles of new immigrants and the world-wide urge to connect and play with peers--we're all humans after all! Whether it's reading and writing, playing soccer, or being a good student/artist, these students finally feel like they fit in after they start making friends and begin to tackle English.

Three children arrive from different parts of the world to start their new lives in America. Their experiences in their new classroom are told through their eyes and their struggles to understand the language and culture is presented realistically and with empathy. A hopeful and encouraging title, this one should resonate with newcomer children as well as their classmates in their new communities.
