Woodly Wiley PierreeBook - 2017
Woodly Wiley Pierre was not your ordinary 3rd grader. She was as tall as the 5th graders and outlined like a pear. Her skin, the color of garden soil on a warm summer's day, was as smooth as a flower's petal. She explored the rainbow in her clothing...Woodly Wiley Pierre is an immigrant. She doesn't look, dress, speak, or even eat like anyone else in her new school. Worst of all, her classmates don't seem to like her. She misses Haiti, but an earthquake has turned everything into rubble and there is nothing to go back to. How will she find her way to understanding and acceptance? When will she stop being so lonely? Starting over in a new world, Woodly Wiley Pierre embodies what it means to be rejected. Her story is about embracing diversity, responding to bullying, seeking to understand others, and making new friends. Woodly Wiley Pierre will inspire laughter and love as she takes you along on her journey.
