A warm, uplifting and inclusive story about approaching newcomers and new situations with openness and honesty. Young children are presented in all of their authentic glory in a real classroom setting. There is so much life and energy in this colourful and captivating picture book which shows the ways in which art can be transformative, leading to empathy and understanding of other cultures. Immersive, warmly portrayed images bring culture and character to life and show how art can mean something to everyone whether or not we share a common language. It expertly draws out the magic and wonder of discovering new art.
