There's no language barrier if chocolate milk is on the menu!

A new kid comes to school—and can't speak English—in this heartwarming picture book on how the simplest act—even the chocolate milk of human kindness—can break down barriers and make kids feel welcome. This empowering picture book shows how being different is delicious and that kindness and empathy are truly universal languages in action-packed illustrations. This book is the perfect complement to other books in your home or school library that focus on ESL, diversity, and empathy, like the work of Bobbi Kates (We’re Different, We’re the Same - Sesame Street) and Shannon Olsen (Our Class is a Family). Maria Dismondy is a sought-after author, publisher, and public speaker. Although fictional, Chocolate Milk, Por Favor is based on a true story from Maria’s own life. This book comes with a free Reader’s Guide for children. Lesson plans on emotional vocabulary, activities, and reading comprehension discussion questions to allow parents, teachers, and caregivers to explore the topic further and deepen comprehension.
