From Anna (Google eBook)
Jean Little's classic celebrates its 40th anniversary with a new look for a new generation!
Nine-year-old Anna has always been the clumsy one in the family — somehow she can never do anything right. She bumps into tables, and she can't read the chalkboard at school. Her perfect brothers and sisters call her "Awkward Anna."
When Papa announces that the family is moving from Germany to Canada — he's worried about what the Nazis' rise to power will bring — Anna's heart sinks. How can she learn English when she can't even read German properly?
But when the Soldens arrive in Canada, Anna learns that there is a reason for her clumsiness. And suddenly, wonderfully, her whole world begins to change, especially when new friends at her special school help her stand up to bullies who call her names.
A truly heartwarming story, From Anna will resonate with any child who has ever felt left out. This 40th anniversary edition includes an Introduction by Katherine Paterson and and Afterword by Jean Little herself.
