Young listeners will appreciate having the hardcover picture book in hand as Samara Naeymi narrates this joyful story of an immigrant child's first day of school in America. From an animated first-person perspective, Rashin describes her new surroundings through the shapes she observes and recalls her life in Iran by the shapes she remembers. There are smiley-face pancakes, braided bread, heart-shaped bracelets, and evocative silhouettes of the diverse countries that the schoolchildren's families once called home. Naeymi creates a bright, cheerful voice for Rashin, which skillfully conveys her back-to-school excitement and her delight in talking about her most precious memories. Frequent pauses in the narration allow listeners to fully appreciate the picture book's vibrant illustrations and to interact with the text.
