School Library Journal - 06/01/2020 PreS-Gr 2—Danbi, an immigrant from Korea, is feeling anxious on her first day of school in America. Her heart pounds as she enters the classroom. Everyone stares at her. Even though many of the class activities and games are new, she participates as best as she can. During lunchtime, kids are curious about how to use her chopsticks, so she shows them and then leads them on a musical parade around the school. Kim, a debut author, has created detailed illustrations in soft colors, highlighting Danbi's fears and then the brighter spots in a brand new setting. VERDICT A sweet and helpful book for children who are nervous about moving or starting a new school—or any big change.—Noureen Qadir-Jafar, Syosset Lib., NY - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
