Yoko

Amazon.com Rating:

Mmm, Yoko's mom has packed her favorite for lunch today -- sushi! But her classmates don't think it looks quite so yummy. "Ick!" says one of the Franks. "It's seaweed!" They're not even impressed by her red bean ice cream dessert. Of course, Mrs. Jenkins has a plan that might solve Yoko's problem. But will it work with the other children in class?

Now in paperback, this tender story from Rosemary Wells demonstrates the author's uncanny understanding of the pleasures and pains of an ordinary school day.

Description

"A class song for every activity, the group dynamics, even the students' clothing and their sandwich fixings perfectly capture the grade school experience.... Every child's need for peer acceptance and dread of being 'different' are addressed in an affirming and believable manner." -- School Library Journal

"...expressive watercolors, both panels and full-scale, capture a distinctive variety of animal children as well as the nuances in Yoko's expressions. Wells's message is clear without being heavy-handed, making this brightly colored schoolroom charmer a perfect book for those American-melting-pot kindergartners who need to develop a genuine respect for one another's differences." -- Publisher's Weekly
