Summary
Are you new here? Do you know someone new? In I'm New Here and Someone New , young readers explore the immigrant experience through both "windows" and "mirrors." In I'm New Here , readers meet three recent immigrants trying to adjust to a new country and school. In Someone New , the same story is told from the perspective of the students who welcome the newcomers. An honest and heartwarming look at diversity, inclusion, and friendship.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This companion to I'm New Here (2015) focuses on the same new-to-the-U.S. children (Maria from Guatemala, Jin from South Korea, and Fatimah from Somalia), but from the perspective of their classmates. Making friends can be difficult if you don't speak English, feel that you don't fit in, or wear different clothing from other children. Though their classmates want to help, they don't know how to approach newcomers. Then Maria bravely asks to play soccer and proves to be skilled at the game. Jin uses his talent for writing stories to connect with another student, and, similarly, Fatimah paints pictures to express herself. Once the ice is broken, friendships follow. O'Brien's watercolor illustrations portray multi-ethnic teachers and students involved in typical primary-grade activities. Most scenes depict the children involved in specific tasks (organizing a soccer game, sitting at the writing table, creating art), and the use of white space as background highlights the kids and their feelings. Satisfyingly, most of the rapprochement is handled without adult intervention; an author's note for adult facilitators is appended.--Kay Weisman Copyright 2018 Booklist"
