The Arabic Quilt: An Immigrant Story
I like this because I started to learn Arabic, and I understood some of the words that were written in Arabic. Being a new kid is hard, and being different is harder. I like how the teacher makes her feel better and asks her to bring the quilt to class to make her feel comfortable. That was a great idea to teach the students something about Arabic. This helps them understand who Kenzi is which inspires another teacher in the school to have her students who speak Japanese to write their students’ names in Japanese. I give this book five stars because it gives us an example that although someone may be different it is still a good idea to get to know them and what makes them different because it might just teach us something cool.
