This book helps children understand two of the most challenging issues of our time-immigration quotas and racism-in a sensitive way that encourages dialogue and creative problem-solving. Nary, a young Cambodian boy, flees the civil war in his homeland and leaves his family behind for a new life in the United States. He is astonished by the freedom and safety he finds in his new country, yet is confronted by a new problem: prejudice. The integrated curriculum guide in English provides classroom-tested activities which explore immigration, U. S. and Southeast Asian history, repatriation, refugees, and other topics related to diversity. Text copyright 2004 Lectorum Publications, Inc.
