You're a teacher -
A new student from Afghanistan joins your class, mid-semester. He’s never been to school before, nor does he speak English. You’re among the first faces he encounters in a new country.
Your task: make him feel at home.
The endless lesson planning begins -
You scramble for online resources while grappling with understanding his background, language, and the trauma he's endured. Amidst countless Western-based pictorial books online, nothing feels relatable for the new student.
Back to the clipart -
It looks like another late night of desperate copying / pasting of clipart and generic stock photos for you. There’s got to be something better than generic vector art and posed stock images of multicultural children...
What if there was a book with cartoons reflecting his own culture, in his own language?
