Overview

While the other kids happily bound into the classroom, Gabe stands with his mother outside the door, timid and unsure about walking into school. That's because Gabe is the new kid at school and he doesn't speak English. Gabe is from another country. With English as a second language, starting school felt scary and intimidating. How would he know what to do? What would the other kids think?

Reviews

"Chocolate milk (Gabe's favorite drink) is a recurring symbol in this heartwarming story about the importance of making friendships and helping others, and the power of kindness when working to overcome the language barrier. Highly recommended!" —Midwest Book Review
