            Stranger Danger (EPUB ebook)

            By Simpson, Michelle; Slater, David Michael

            On the first day of Sunday School, six good friends walk into the classroom to find a stranger-a girl with big, black, curly hair sitting at one of the desks. Without giving her much thought, and ignoring the worried look in her eyes, they send her away to find a different class.... But what's even stranger to them is their new teacher, Mr. Mensch, who is dressed up like the Statue of Liberty! Mr. Mensch takes the kids on a whirlwind adventure aboard his magical Meshugenahmobile, all the way back to 1903, a time when immigrants arrived to the shores of New York in waves, to unwelcoming crowds. A book for readers of all backgrounds, this is a story about the true meaning of being welcoming to others.

Side by side... text in English and Ethiopian languages like Amharic, Tigrinya and Afaan Oromo help emerging bilingual readers build vocabulary and fluency. Playful illustrations bring the story to life and support vocabulary with clear visual references and engaging pictures. Part of the Ready, Set, Go! series of bilingual early readers. Part of Open Hearts Big Dreams mission to increase literacy in Ethiopian languages.Ready Set Go Books, an Open Hearts Big Dreams Project, is focused on increasing the literacy rate in Ethiopia through giving readers books with stories in their heart languages, full of colorful illustrations with Ethiopian settings and details. Profits from books sales will be used to create, print, and distribute more Ready Set Go Books to kids in Ethiopia, Africa's second most populous country. Ethiopia's population is 44% children, ages 0-14 (43 million out of 97 million total). Only 5.5% of children attend pre-school or kindergarten, and the adult literacy rate is 49%. Our books are based on wise Ethiopian sayings that often rhyme in Amharic. If an adult says the first half, many children can chant the second half. Sometimes the meaning of these sayings is clear. Sometimes it has to be puzzled out and argued over. But sayings and idioms and proverbs help people express truths and beliefs in unusual ways. Open Hearts Big Dreams Fund (OHBD) is a 501(3)(c) not for profit organization that believes the chance to dream big dreams should not depend on where in the world you are born. Our focus is to support nonprofit organizations and their programs that provide literacy, K-12 education, and leadership as well as that support the parents and communities where the kids live, in Ethiopia.
