Picture Books & Resources
Immigration involves moving to a new country, an often emotionally, physically and mentally challenging experience. It is a difficult issue for young children to understand because of the complex factors involved. These books focus on people fleeing their homes, arriving in new countries and their hopes and fears. Sharing the books builds empathy and understanding for the lives of other people. They are also great discussion starters to answer children’s questions.
