Farah is the new girl at school and the dupatta covering her head makes her just a little different from the other students. Because she hasn't learned the English language yet, she knows that some people might not be very friendly. On the second day of school, the class takes a field trip to an apple orchard. Farah sees that some of the children want to become friends with her on the hay ride. When it comes time to make the apple cider, however, other classmates protest as she drops the only green apple into a vat full of ripe red ones. Will Farah's apple ruin the cider? Winner of the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers, Eve Bunting warmly conveys the feelings of a young Muslim girl who faces a new school in a new country. Farah's fears and joys are deftly expressed in a eloquent reading by narrator Charlotte Parry. Download and start listening now!

    " Simple, yet this book is moving, and able to reach deeply into the emotions and help one understand the small, fragile girl who feels tiny inside herself. Just arriving to this country, Farah wants to come outside of herself and connect, but she has several barriers. One; her dupatta causes her to stand out from her peers, and two; her language barriers keep her apart except for her classmate Anna, who reaches into Farah's frightened and tiny self to welcome her. Again, in this book the illustrations are very strong and the facial expressions are a wonderful mimic of human expression. And though the words are few, the feeling and the message is palpable and powerful. "

    " This is a good book to read aloud and learn about immigration. We would learn what immigration means. I would have the students write about what it would be like if they were in a classroom where they could not understand what people were saying? We would then discuss how we can make immigrants and people who do not speak English more comfortable. "

    " This book is about Farrah, a young, Muslim girl who goes on a a field trip to an orchard. Farrah feels out of place because she is different from her classmates and cannot speak English well. The students pick the apples, and while most of them pick red apples, Farrah picks a green apple to put into the juicer because it is different like herself. Farrah tastes her green apple in the juice and is happy. Her classmates try to include her and talk to her, which makes her feel more at ease. She learns her first word, Apple. This book is great to teach students from grades K-5, that it's ok to be different. It can also teach students about other cultures. it is also a great way to teach students about immigration. "
