From the diverse cultures of Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Guyana, Somalia, and others, immigrant children write of the fear, the excitement and challenge of moving to another world and forging a new sense of self in a new land.

Praise & Recognition

The collection includes harrowing stories of escape from oppressive regimes, or the frustration at having no choice in moving to a new country, and the universally nerve-wracking experience of adjusting to a new school, new language, a colder climate, and new friends.... [A] highly readable book that would no doubt be indispensable in opening up dialogue about the immigration experience in classrooms and school libraries. Highly Recommended. CM: Canadian Review of Materials
This collection of stories written by immigrant children is a window into understanding the immigrant experience from a child’s point of view.... Highly recommended for Grades 2 to 5. Professionally Speaking
