A heartwarming picture book following a group of boys from different backgrounds throughout the school year as they become the best of friends. Musa's feeling nervous about his first day of school. He's not used to being away from home and he doesn't know any of the other kids in his class. And when he meets classmates Moisés, Mo, and Kevin, Musa isn't sure they'll have much in common. But over the course of the year, the four boys learn more about each other, the holidays they celebrate, their favorite foods, and what they like about school. The more they share with each other, the closer they become, until Musa can't imagine any better friends. In this charming story of friendship and celebrating differences, young readers can discover how entering a new friendship with an open mind and sharing parts of yourself brings people together. And the calendar of holidays at the end of the book will delight children as they identify special events they can celebrate with friends throughout the year.… (more)

A group of boys from different backgrounds throughout the school year as they become the best of friends.

A beautiful book full of detailed illustrations that make the children's favorite holidays come alive. I would read this one with older children, as it the concepts are fairly advanced for toddlers or young preschoolers. Great for kindergarten on up, though. For my storytime, this is too long and involved, but for a classroom setting, it would work well. ( )

I absolutely love this book. Students share their favorite day of the year, which is quite a variety! Then on their day, they share about their day- whether it's culture, tradition, food, words, family... and at the end, the teacher makes a calendar with each student's favorite day in it so they can all remember each other.

This is a great book for young to intermediate readers, preferably ages 7-10. This book describes a classroom where each student describes a holiday that they celebrate with their family that you normally wouldn't know about. ( )

Primary. Each student in the class got to share about their favorite day of the year, usually based on a holiday or some other tradition from their culture. I would use this in the classroom to give a little introduction to many different cultures which we can explore more deeply later on.
