One Green Apple

I thought this book was sweet, and dealt well with the issue of diversity in elementary classrooms. In this book, Farrah is unable to speak English and doesn't really seem to fit in with her peers at school. On a class field trip, she finds a green apple in a field of red ones, which becomes a metaphor for who she is. Later she befriends a boy, who although he is unable to talk with her, finds other ways to communicate.She soon feels like she fits in and mkes friends,. I think this is good for younger children who haven't quite grasped that diversity is okay. Younger children don't understand when they see a difference and often exclude the difference. This book can help them to see what to do and help them in their diverse classrooms.
