BEST OF THE YEAR Kirkus - Parents - Chicago Public Library - Washington Post - Evanston Public Library - Los Angeles Public Library Charlotte Huck Recommended Book Common Sense Media Selection It's Dat's first day of school in a new country! Dat and his Mah made a long journey to get here, and Dat doesn't know the language. To Dat, everything everybody says -- from the school bus driver to his new classmates -- sounds like gibberish. How is Dat going to make new friends if they can't understand each other? Luckily there's a friendly girl in Dat's class who knows that there are other ways to communicate, besides just talking. Could she help make sense of the gibberish? P R A I S E "A superb picture book.
