A Review of "Immigrant Experiences" in School Library Connection
With all the debate about immigration recently it is easy to forget that, with the exception of Native Americans, everyone living in the United States has relatives that came from somewhere else. This series of books provides a balanced view of what coming to America is like. Each title explores the major reasons large numbers of people feel the need to leave their homelands and try to start a new life in the United States. The challenges and successes are discussed through the experiences of real people. Each book includes a Fast Facts page, ‘Think About’ questions, and quotes from primary sources. The illustrations are a combination of drawings and photographs with captions that are very informative. These titles are well written and would be a great resource for both researchers and casual readers who want to learn more about immigration. Bibliography. Glossary. Index. Timeline. Websites.
