No English
written by Jacqueline Jules
illustrated by Amy Huntington

Every time someone speaks to Blanca, the new girl from Argentina, she shakes her head and says, "No English." Second grader Diane is not sympathetic at first. She is jealous because their teacher, Mrs. Bertram, allows Blanca to draw instead of doing class work. One misunderstanding follows another until Diane feels compelled to makes things right. But how can Diane apologize when they don't speak the same language? Told from the viewpoint of an American born child reaching out to a newcomer, No English sensitively portrays the diversity and reality of many American classrooms.
