This was another book I read to my first graders because I thought it did a nice job of capturing what it¿s like to be new in class. It's a story about a friendship between two girls, one in which is the new girl. Both are very cautious and of one another, but eventually bond over the new girl¿s pet iguana. The one bad thing about this book is that it talks about punching people, bullying others, being left out, laughing at others, but it doesn¿t convey the message that these things are wrong. Therefore, this book is a great book to read as long as you address the issues above and explain how they are wrong since the book doesn¿t do that for you.

This is a great book to read to young children about being the new student. It also shows that being nice to the "New Girl" can make them feel more comfortable and "like they are at home." A good example on making new friends.
