Hello Friends!

In celebration of World Day of Migrants and Refugees, we are releasing an Event Kit for classrooms, libraries and community organizers to start a conversation about being a welcoming community.

The kit is based on the picture book I’M NEW HERE by Anne Sibley O’Brien (Charlesbridge Publishing).  The book was a "Kirkus Reviews 100 Best Picture Books of 2015."

The kit was co-produced by our team at I’m Your Neighbor, a website featuring “new arrival” kidlit:

I’M NEW HERE: Giveaway
