The story was very well told. It had a diverse reaction to the new student that is realistic. I love how the students helped solve the issue of Uhei. the teacher was really in the background. Student's often try to please their peers - so this was very encouraging.

Though initial previewing of the pictures made me nervous the children would not support their new Korean classmate, the words in the story expressed the opposite: a fellow classmate is interested in the Korean culture and language and all the students make her feel welcome and accepted. One thing that does irk me, though, is the Korean word for "grace" (unhei) is actually pronounced differently than the book implies her name is pronounced.

Although the girl gets concerned that her classmates will not be able to pronounce her name, they support her even with her reluctance to say her name throughout the first week of school.
