Through an origami crane project her classmates show her that they really want to get to know her. Later, when a new family moves into her neighborhood, Emma has a great idea how to make them feel welcome!
Filled with fun pictures and ideas, this story addresses the anxiety that comes with new beginnings and shows kids a way to act as a diverse community. At the end of the book, instructions for making a paper crane are included so that kids can make their own cranes to share!
