It’s Gabe’s first day of school in America, and he doesn’t speak English

While the other kids happily bound into the classroom, Gabe stands with his mother outside the door, timid and unsure about walking into school. That’s because Gabe is the new kid at school and he doesn’t speak English.

Gabe is from another country. With English as a second language, starting school felt scary and intimidating. How would he know what to do? What would the other kids think?
The teacher goes out of her way to make Gabe feel welcome and encourages the other kids to celebrate diversity with empathy. But that doesn’t stop Johnny from going out of his way to be unkind.

Chocolate Milk, Por Favor illustrates how actions speak louder than words and drives home the importance of celebrating diversity, kindness, inclusion and empathy. Because no matter what language you speak, kindness is the universal language of all.
