Danbi Leads the School Parade

Danbi is thrilled to start her new school in America. But a bit nervous too, for when she walks into the classroom, everything goes quiet. Everyone stares. Danbi wants to join in the dances and the games, but she doesn't know the rules and just can't get anything right.

Luckily, she isn't one to give up — and her traditional Korean lunch provides the intriguing details that allows her to open up to her classmates. Before long, they're testing out chopsticks, and sharing their own stories with her too! With a spark of imagination, she makes up a new game and leads her classmates on a parade to remember!

Danbi Leads the School Parade introduces readers to an irresistible new character as she learns to navigate her two cultures and realizes that when you open your world to others, their world opens up to you.

"Enchanting illustrations dazzle — particularly through the diverse characters’ hair and facial expressions that detail individuals’ unique traits while celebrating the entire cohort. According to the author’s note, the story is inspired by the creator’s own 'bicultural identity,' and the endpapers encapsulate an immigrant child’s journey: the poignant departure and the prosaic pleasures of new friends will resonate with readers of all ages. Imaginative, irreverent, improvisational fun in kindergarten: Danbi shares a burst of 'sweet rain,' complete with a rainbow." — Kirkus Reviews
