Kids Like Me: Voices of the Immigrant Experience

by Judith M. Blohm and Terri Lapinsky
£12.99   paperback  Nicholas Brealey Publishing Ltd (2006)

Kids Like Me: Voices of the Immigrant Experience by Judith M. Blohm and Terri Lapinsky As our neighborhoods grow more diverse, a splendid variety of cultures, values and traditions become an important part of our classrooms and schools. In Kids Like Me, 26 personal narratives celebrate the experience of young people making a new home in a strange community—finding common ground as they make new friends, learn a different language, and share their unique cultural identities.
 
Kids Like Me provides a personal backdrop to the important themes of cultures and customs, immigration and citizenship, and learning to appreciate differences.
 
While written to help youth understand their classmates and friends, Kids Like Me also includes discussion questions, self-directed activities and research ideas for teachers and families that can be used in classrooms, clubs and community settings.
 
Richly illustrated with photos and maps of each home country, the text presents countless opportunities to explore and understand new cultures and new friends. Young people who have come from places all over the world share their stories and invite their new neighbors to see that in so many ways these kids are just like me.
