The book is great...why do I say that? Great books are books that move you in some way. Anyone who reads this book will get one thing right off...these kids parents BELIEVED in the American dream of freedom and opportunity. That is something I think a lot of us sometimes forget...how truly great America is for a person who has dreams.
The stories are short and easy to read...kind of like a Readers Digest format. So you can sit down each morning and read one story over a cup of coffee. Trust me...one of these stories a day will lift your spirits in a huge way! And isn't that worth the price of admission?
This is the kind of book that parents need to read and then make sure each of their children read too. It's got strong lessons in it. Lessons about how great most of us have it ...even those who "think" they don't have a lot ....when you read about the lives of many of these immigrants and the work load they carried in order to live the dream or more importantly to let their children and their children live the dream.
I think a book like this can teach a lot to many many people...YOU just have to get the ball rolling by buying one copy, reading it and passing it forward....it will change lives....maybe even yours!!!!
Children of Immigrants are all around us if you are one,please read this amazing book of incredible people, you might find yourself as one of these amazing persons.
I have the privilege of teaching at a university with a diverse population.
Over the years, I've had many students who are children of immigrants and I've witnessed their struggles as they faced the challenges of school obligations and family commitments. Up until now, I could not fully comprehend what my students were going through. I could hear but I could not see.
This book has allowed me the opportunity to step into many pairs of shoes, see life styles I can never experience and gain a greater level of understanding and compassion that will help me become a better educator. Not a bad place to be. Thank you for this gift.
