From the diverse cultures of Pakistan, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Vietnam, Germany, Guyana, Somalia, and others, immigrant children write of their experiences leaving their homes and moving to a new country. The stories, poems and pictures in Our New Home tell of the fear and sadness, excitement and challenge of moving around the world and forging a new sense of self in a new land.

Canadian Review of Materials Magazine - February 8, 2008
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.
