“Dyamonde Daniel was a gem waiting to be discovered. Just ask her.” With these opening lines, best-selling author Nikki Grimes introduces us to a new character kids are bound to love, a super smart third grader with wild-crazy hair and a can-do attitude.
The thing is, Dyamonde has just moved to a new school, and she's impatient for a best friend. Then Free shows up, and there’s an even newer kid in class who might also need a friend. Unfortunately, Free doesn’t want to be friends. In fact, he seems to be in a permanently bad mood. Dyamonde is determined to find out what’s bothering him. And when Dyamonde Daniel decides to do something, it usually gets done!
A charming book about friendship and fitting in, delightfully read by the author, Make Way for Dyamond Daniel is surefire listening for the younger set.
