Publisher's Summary

A six-year-old Chinese girl named Ping learns to speak English by total immersion in an American first-grade class. In the process, she discovers that not everyone thinks the same, and that even when language is mastered, there can be other barriers to complete communication between friends.

Sometimes we just have to accept others without trying to change them.

Encourages thinking outside your cultural box

This short chapter book for children will also be interesting for their parents. Evelyn Adams did a lovely job of capturing the nuances of a child's thoughts. With this book, Aya Katz relays a bit of what it's like to learn a new language via total immersion. You may laugh, cry, and cheer along with Ping as she navigates the triumphs and pitfalls of learning a new language.
