Unveiling “Amaleigha Makes a New Friend” by Brave Kids Books

The new book teaches elementary school students about the Ukrainian people, fostering a connection with others

A new book from Brave Healer Production’s Brave Kids Book Division, Amaleigha Makes a New Friend, teaches elementary school-aged readers about Ukrainian people, their culture, and war with Russia, and hints at practical ways students and their families can help Ukrainian families during their current humanitarian crisis.

Written by school librarian Janice Pratt and illustrated by Alina Kralia, a Ukrainian artist who relocated because of the war, the book tells the story of Amaleigha, a third-grader at Happy Days Elementary who comes to know a Ukrainian boy named Vova from letters they write through a pen-pal program run by her teacher.

While young readers of the books and their families are likely to come away with knowing some Ukrainian words, foods and traditions—including ways that Christmas is celebrated there—they may also find that they have a greater understanding and empathy for people living in other parts of the world.

Pratt says, “I feel that when we can learn about people in other parts of the world, we feel more like a world family and we want to find ways to take care of our families whether in our own homes or far away.”

Amaleigha’s fictional third-grade classmates debate whether to have a clothes drive, a spare change collection or donate money to a fund that aids Ukrainian families.

Laura Di Franco, publisher and CEO of Brave Healer Productions says, “This delightful story cuts straight to the heart and will be a gift to kids and adults alike.”

Hello there! I'm a 21-year-old university student majoring in Finnish and Korean Language and Literature. I have a deep passion for art and a profound connection to the natural world. My journey through life has been a colorful one, driven by my love for creativity, music, and the wonders of the great outdoors. As a dedicated student, I've already earned a degree in Classic Cantos, a testament to my appreciation for the timeless beauty of classical music. Beyond the classroom, my artistic spirit thrives through my love for painting and drawing. These creative outlets allow me to express my thoughts and emotions, transforming blank canvases into vibrant stories. My interests go far beyond music and art. Singing, playing the piano, and exploring new melodies are integral parts of my life, providing me with both solace and exhilaration. When I'm not immersed in the world of art and music, I find solace in nature's embrace. My heart is drawn to animals and the serene beauty of the natural world, fueling my desire to protect and preserve our precious environment.
