Booklist Reviews 2020 July #1

In this debut picture book, Danbi is excited for her first day of school in America. However, having just moved from Korea, the language barrier and strange classroom culture make her feel excluded. Her day improves at lunchtime when she impresses her classmates with her fancy foods and chopstick skills. The click-clack sound of the chopsticks spurs an all-class musical parade and leads to Danbi making a friend. The illustrations highlight Danbi's emotions by focusing color and detail on the characters and only hinting at the backgrounds with sketchy gray shapes on white. The story shows the loneliness this young girl feels when she has no one to play with. Although it is slightly incredible that Danbi's classmates are awed by her yams, dumplings, and rice cakes, their openness might encourage students to adopt a similar posture. Overall, the expressive illustrations and the joyful onomatopoeia of the text make this an enjoyable read-aloud and especially reassuring for a child starting at a new school. Preschool-Grade 1.

PW Reviews 2020 June #3

Introducing an ingenuous girl who has just moved from South Korea to the U.S. with her parents, Kim's debut radiates positivity, inclusivity, and hope. Danbi bravely enters her classroom on the first day at her new school to encounter a gaggle of staring, curious kids who speak a different language than she does. Though Danbi initially feels excluded when she tries unsuccessfully to join in new activities, her mood soon brightens. When it's time to open their lunches, Danbi thinks, "That, I knew how to do!" and she shares her meal ("Yams in honey, crystal dumplings," and more) with her impressed classmates, offering a chopsticks lesson that erupts—joyously—into cacophonous, makeshift music-making and a playground parade. South Korean–born Kim (who, like her heroine, emigrated to the U.S. as a child) offers upbeat illustrations of the children in action, which magnify the story's high spirits—and Danbi's triumph. Ages 3–7. (July)
