Lucy is nervous about fitting in on her first day of school. These fears are magnified by the cultural diversity that she sees in her classmates. Fortunately, Lucy’s fears are soon quelled as she is introduced to 10 new friends, with 10 distinct backgrounds. Upon each introduction, Lucy travels with her new friend on an imaginary journey to their homeland. Through her “travels” Lucy learns fun new facts about each country and its people.
