By Aiko Ikegami (Albert Whitman & Company)
Children, animals or extraterrestrials, everyone has trouble making friends at first. Everyone feels different and alone. Who will eat lunch with me? Who will play with me? The story covers familiar terrain, but it does so gently and amusingly. This book will lighten the load for kids having to start at a new school and sensitize kids who need some help accepting a newcomer.
