On Shelves Now: I'M NEW HERE by Anne Sibley O'Brien

32 p.
Publisher: Charlesbridge
Ages: 5 to 8

Maria is from Guatemala, Jin is from Korea, and Fatima is from Somalia. All three are new to their American elementary school, and each has trouble speaking, writing, and sharing ideas in English. Through self-determination and with encouragement from their peers and teachers, the students learn to feel confident and comfortable in their new school without losing a sense of their home country, language, and identity.
