Once upon a time, there was a boy named Bobbi Brown. He just moved to New York from Jamacia. He started grade 3 at his new school, River East Elementary School.
Bobbi Brown's parents took him to the bus for his first day of school. He was so excited that he hopped right onto the bus, took a seat and waved at his parents from the bus window and said: "Goodbye, see you later!"
See you later!
He gets off the bus and takes a good look at the school and runs in ready to start his first day and make new friends!
Bobbi Brown was so excited that he decided to sit right in front of the teacher.
The other students looked at him rudely, but he didn't notice because he was too excited and paid extra attention to Mrs Applebee.
During recess, Bobbi was playing alone in the playground because the other kids did not want to play with him due to the colour of his skin. As he was playing, he could hear rude comments all about him that hurt him deeply.
Why is he so dark?! Why does he talk differently?!
Later that day, when Bobbi was waiting for the bus, a grade 4 student named Larry came up to him. Not too long did it take for Bobbi and Larry to discover that they both have the same interests and right away, they became friends.
