Behind the Mic: Ramon de Ocampo

AudioFile goes Behind the Mic to talk with Ramon de Ocampo about recording Anne Sibley O’Brien’s inspiring children’s audiobook, I’M NEW HERE. Part of an ensemble cast of voices, Ramon encourages us to explore this read-along and learn about welcoming immigrants and refugees.

“We’ve all been there—we’ve all been the new kid at school. And we probably will be again.” —Narrator Ramon de Ocampo

I'm New Here

I’M NEW HERE
by Anne Sibley O’Brien, read by Frankie Corzo, Ariana Delawari, Ramon de Ocampo, Ruth Livier, Anne Sibley O’Brien

The voices who introduce us to Fatima, Maria, and Jin remind us how it feels to be the new kid. This read-along might help your children, or the children in your life, understand and reflect on what it means to be new to a country and to leave everything you knew behind.
