I love that the stories of each student and their day are based on their own words, with the help of family. It’s also nice to see Shanika attending a First Nations school chosen for Canada, where children can learn about the Cree language, the meaning of the word Kokum, along with tradition foods and practices. I love that almost every story includes an important word from another language! There is a celebration of diversity through cultural experiences, family, physical abilities, and personal preferences of the student, such as their favourite subject. I bought this as a gift but would recommend it as a book for children in general or as a donation to a school library.
Another great book to teach children about schools around the world. A wonderful addition to your library, especially if you enjoy learning about other cultures and traditions.
A very nice book that teaches children what school can be like for different children around the world.
