Ms. Nanji, a slightly clumsy Grade 2 teacher, moves to Nairobi, Kenya to teach for two years. Although this is not a new place for her, this is the first time she's lived away from home for so long. What could possibly go wrong? She learned a lot of great things while training to become a teacher, such as, ahem, punctuality. However, she is not prepared for the events that take place on this particular day. What does a teacher find embarrassing? How many pieces of cake does it take to ruin two pairs of pants? Will she have to deal with African animals in her classroom? How bizarre can a day at school truly be? Will she ever recover from this day? And what will the students think?

About the Author

Razina Nanji is Canadian-born of Indian descent. Her grandparents migrated to East Africa, where her parents were born. Her parents later migrated to Toronto, Ontario, where Razina was born. Razina's family moved to Kinshasa, Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo) when she was one year old, and they lived there for about seven years. When the riots started in 1991, they fled to Ontario, where she grew up and obtained her undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Waterloo. She wanted to be a teacher and got an interim opportunity, in 2007, to gain international experience at a school in Nairobi, Kenya for three months. She loved it so much that she returned in 2009, after earning a Master's of Science in Education from Niagara University, New York. Teaching in Nairobi for two years was an unforgettable experience that she has kept close to her heart. After returning to Canada, she has continued to work in the education field. Her goal, as an author, is to add to the collection of culturally diverse books.
