Editorial Reviews

Review

Igoa brings us to the understanding that academic achievement can not be divorced from the child's affective dimensions. Her results are often remarkable, sometimes disappointing. But even the disappointments move us closer to understanding these children, and their world.
Multicultural Education

Readers who are concerned about the education of immigrant children in today's schools will find this book very inspiring.
Multicultural Perspectives

Unique in the recent North American literature on bilingual/multicultural education....Original and powerful....The voice and struggles of the author are expressed eloquently and speak directly to the many thousands of teachers who are struggling to adjust to a radically new demographic reality. For mainstream teachers who are looking for ideas and inspiration the book has some very important messages.
Jim Cummins
The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education

Highly readable, engaging, and free of educational jargon....Absolutely essential for today's teachers....I kept thinking as I was reading how lucky her students were, and how I would want all immigrant children to have Cristina Igoa as their teacher.
Sonia Nieto
University of Massachusetts Amherst

Presents the immigrant children's stories in an easily readable and understandable fashion....Has a lot to offer both new and veteran teachers who are faced with increasing diversity in our schools.
Henry T. Trueba

Cristina Igoa helps us to understand the inner world that immigrant children in the United States often conceal and suppress while acculturating/assimilating to our society. This book is enjoyable and insightful as well as useful for teachers in our ever-changing, diverse schools.As a teacher it will help you to better understand and serve our immigrant youth. I would recommend this book for all who care about education, but also for anyone living in a multi-cultural society. It enlightened and touched me and has become unlimitedly useful reading.

Format: Paperback
The American educational system is changing through the introduction of immigrant children. These children need teachers and other adults in their lives to stop and hear their voices. Igoa allows these voices to speak loudly to her audience.

Visiting with the children later in their lives helps to confirm Igoa's assumptions and educational practice. Stop and listen to their voices as you are taken into the children's frustrations, joys, and struggles as they attempt acculturation.

The Inner World of an Immigrant Child is all about experience - of the students, teachers, classmates, Administration, reader, and author. The narrative form allows the reader to easily understand and follow both Igoa and the students from the beginning of their journey to four years later, when the students were older and able to share their reflections about earlier experiences. I am left with two enlightening and important reminders after reading and thinking about the book: (1) to always remain aware that the academic achievement of immigrant children cannot be separated from their affective dimensions and; (2) they must have a sense of personal power while learning. The book shares the author's discovery that empowerment through expression is what allowed the students to begin learning. The book engages the reader in a process of observation, personal reflection, and then inquiry into their own practices. I will probably read the book multiple times over the coming years as my students change and move on, and will discover something new to consider each time. It is simply a great book.

I recommend this book for teachers of children from other countries and cultures. I have taught immigrants and English Language learners for years however this was still insightful. I have lived in other countries as well and know the isolation that can occur due to linguistic and cultural differences. Great suggestions from author Igoa - many of which I use in my classroom daily. Easy to read and apply.

A good book for teachers, future teachers and school administrators. Easy to understand and very practical. I love the classroom story section; it makes you reflect on our second language learners.
