" 'Why are you so mean to me,' wondered Ut. 'Because you are different. You wear funny clothes and you talk with funny words,' answered Raymond." And there you have it. How difficult it is for a young Vietnamese girl to come to a new country without her mother and to be treated so unkindly by the people around her. This is a fantastic, sensitive book about accepting others, understanding others and not being afraid of the things that are different about others. A tremendous read aloud and tool for teaching acceptance and how to celebrate our differences rather than to fear them.
