On the first day of school, Isabel worries about fitting in, especially when her English is so limited. Her Mama tells her that it is OK to be scared. When Isabel uses her art to reach out to another student she discovers that there are other ways, besides words, to communicate.

English, with its blustery blues and whites, just feels wrong to Isabel. She prefers the warm oranges and pinks of Spanish. As she prepares for class at a new school, she knows she's going to have to learn--and she would rather not! Her first day is uncomfortable, until she discovers there's more than one way to communicate with friends. This is a universal story about feeling new and making new friends.

A full Spanish translation is included as well as a Spanish language glossary.
