"This tremendously artful, empathetic book shows the power of gentle curiousity." (Age 4-8)--Robin


2020 Jane Addams Children's Book Award Finalist

Two girls forge a forever-friendship by learning each other's language. The Day Saida Arrived demonstrates the power of language to build bonds beyond borders.

What happens when a new friend arrives who doesn't speak your language? A young girl searches for the words to help her friend feel welcome and happy in her new home, and along the way learns about differences and similarities in countries and words. The two forge a strong bond while they each learn the other's language, exploring the world around them.

A joyous, lyrical text--including English translations and pronunciations and the complete Arabic alphabet--offers an accessible, fresh approach to talking about immigration. Paired with lushly vivid illustrations, The Day Saida Arrived demonstrates the power of language to build bonds beyond borders. Printed on FSC-certified paper with vegetable-based inks.
