A noteworthy review of Immigrant Experiences from Horn Book Guide on January 1, 2019
This series provides general glimpses into many immigrant groups’ struggles in the U.S. Vignettes (with direct quotes) of real immigrants striving for citizenship and acceptance in America add intimacy and impact to the presentation; frank discussions of discrimination are included.
