Great book for newcomers

I received a fresh batch of Classic Munsch books for Salmon Arm Branch! The great collection of Robert Munsch picture books includes From Far Away.  

This book is perfect for refugees and immigrants who want to see some of the problems they face represented in books for kids.

It is also excellent for encouraging kids to be inclusive in class and try to understand why sometimes people act strangely. They are most likely unfamiliar with a custom or holiday we take for granted or traumatized by past events.
