The Brand New Kid - Couric, Katie

A whimsically illustrated book by the co-anchor of NBC's "Today" show, "The Brand New Kid" introduces two little girls who show true compassion when a not-so-ordinary boy joins their classroom. Couric wrote the book after covering a variety of news events on school violence that made her realize and remember how cruel kids can be to one another.
