Who Belongs Here? tells the story of a boy who, having been forced to flee his war-torn country, struggles to be accepted by his new classmates in the U.S. Some kids think he should go back where he belongs, but what if everyone whose family came from another place was forced to return to his or her homeland? Who would be left?
A new introduction traces the waves of immigration that have built America and celebrates the Muslim and Latino immigrants who are today contributing to America's future. The book's new cover shows a group of kids--sons and daughters of newly arrived immigrants--taking their oath of citizenship. This story is more timely now than ever.
Long an anchor text for school units on immigration and tolerance, Who Belongs Here? is now renewed in look and content. Teaching compassion for recent immigrants while sharing the important contributions made by immigrants of the past, this story is more relevant now than ever.
