Immigration Stories: Books for Young Children
Picture books are a wonderful way to talk about big topics with children (and adults). These books for children focus on themes related to immigration, including the many kinds of journeys people make when moving to a new land, as well as some of the experiences that children in immigrant families experience.
These titles can provide important 'mirrors' and 'windows' for children and families from a wide range of backgrounds, and may also prove to be important resources for immigrant families at home.
Note: Keep in mind that some of the topics in these books may elicit strong feelings from children, especially those who have experienced some kind of trauma. Use discretion when choosing which titles to share with children in private or group settings.
