I'm New Here by Anne Sibley O'Brien.
This books is an insight of how difficult it can be to transition to a new country and to do it in elementary school. Kids have to work hard to understand language and customs. New alphabets in some cases, reading and writing are huge challenges. Making new friends can be also be a challenge with all of these other barriers. This book is written simply and shows the transition of adjustment. It is a necessity for kids to be exposed to this kind of story and it helps for them to be empathetic.
