On the first day of second grade at her new school, Pa Lia Vang discovers that things are not as bad as she had feared.
Posted April 4, 2001
On her first day in a new school Pa Lia couldn't find her classroom, was knocked down by a bully, and got into trouble for passing notes. She felt alone and was afraid she wouldn't make new friends. My E.S.L. students really related to Pa Lia's feelings of being alone. It provides a springboard for class discussions on how it feels to be the new student in a class . The figurative language in this book is especially beautiful and was well illustrated by author/illustrator Michelle Edwards.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
