This book is especially worthy because of the Caldecott-winning illustrator. It authentically portrays what a Muslim's experience might be like as a newcomer to this country, which is not always too pretty. However, the book ends on a very positive note. "One Green Apple" is simply worth it.
We are preparing to adopt children from another country, and we found this book to be extremely helpful in showing our existing children (ages 4.5 and 6.5) what it would be like to suddenly find yourself in a country where you look different, dress differently, and don't speak the language. This is an amazing book because it really makes the children feel for the girl, to put themselves "in her shoes" and show them why tolerance and warmth and friendliness to others are so important. It is a great book for starting a discussion. I felt like my 6.5 year old really "got it" but even my 4.5 year old was able to understand the basics and to have a bit of a conversation about it. I think that generally it would be good for ages 5-10.
We got this from the library, but we may just have to buy it and add it to our bookshelf. Love it.
