Walking into a classroom for the first time can be tough! This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the bravery that even the youngest among us can find on the first day of school. Jacqueline Woodson brings special focus on how our differences can bring us together.
A young boy and girl each feel like outsiders in their classrooms because of their differences, but when they share their stories with their classmates they create common ground.
This book celebrates outsiders! Sometimes you might feel like you don't fit in, but when you share your story, you may discover that someone else has the same differences as you! The beautiful artwork is done by Pura Belpré Award winner, Rafael López.

"There will be times when you walk into a room and no one there is quite like you until the day you begin to share your stories."
All that stands beside you is
your own brave self—
steady as steel and ready
even though you don’t yet know
what you’re ready for.
And all at once, in the room where no one else is quite like you, the world opens itself up a little wider to make some space for you.
