Yangsook Choi

Being the new kid in school is hard enough, but what about when nobody can pronounce your name? Having just moved from Korea, Unhei is anxious that American kids will like her. This delightful and warm story will help to make any child feel more comfortable about going to a new school, or new environment in general, particularly if there are cultural and racial differences.
