Maya is the new girl in class. She is teased about everything from the clothes and shoes she wears to the food she brings for lunch. Since she never comes to school dressed in new clothes, a classmate names her “never new”. Maya wants to be friends with her classmates, but nobody will play with her or learn the games she wants to teach them. One day their teacher discusses the ripple effect of kindness with the class. The students think they have a second chance to be kind to Maya, but they find her absent from school because she has to move away. This is a powerful story about remorse and lost opportunity. With its beautiful and subtle watercolor illustrations, this book is a gentle conversation starter for discussions about bullying.

Beginning with one gorilla and counting up to ten, readers will encounter the well- known chimpanzees and lemurs along with the lesser known mandrills and macaques. By including his self- portrait at the end, followed by a collection of human portraits representing many cultures, Browne makes a powerful statement about the connectedness of the primate family.
