Spell It Like S-A-M-A-R
Written by Shira Safadi (Ruqaya's Bookshelf)
An empowering story of persistence and believing in yourself!
Samar has recently moved to America from Syria, and everything is new. Even the jump rope games at recess are unfamiliar. It doesn't help that Jenna, the class bully, keeps making fun of Samar's accent and the fact that Samar had to go to ESL classes (English Second Language).
Samar decides to enter the school spelling bee to prove once and for all that she's smarter than everyone thinks! But learning the words turns out harder than she thought. Can Samar be persistent and compete in the school spelling bee?
"Can’t emphasize how much I loved reading this! The story is absolutely inspiring and has a very important message of persistence that is so important for our children to learn. The illustrations are wonderful as well. A must have for every household!" - 5 star review by Dania
