Do you have friends from Africa or another country? Imagine what it might be like to move to a new country, or attend a school where everything is new, including the language.
All the children featured in Kay Fenton Smith’s book, Zakery’s Bridge: Children’s Journeys from Around the World to Iowa, successfully managed such a transition. One of the stories, titled “Worldly Grace,” tells of a youngwo man from Sudan. Get to know her culture as you discover more about her experience. Try on African‐style “laus” and create an African‐inspired craft to take home as a souvenir.
