About this title


Describes an Eritrean family's struggle to emigrate from their country, which was fighting for independence from Ethiopia, to the United States, and the adjustments they have made

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-7--This series makes the refugee experience more meaningful by relating personal stories that reveal why families fled their native countries and how they seek to preserve their culture while assimilating into modern life in the United States. The first half of each book describes the family's life in their native land, struggles in refugee camps, and dangers encountered as they fled to the U.S.; the second half relates their experiences as they adjusted to life in Minnesota. Eritrean focuses on 14-year-old Yordanos Kiflu; her family fled their country as it fought for independence from Ethiopia. Hmong features 11-year-old Xiong Pao Vang; his family tells of wars in Laos and the involvement of this country that led to their eventual emigration. Full-color photographs and a pronunciation guide round out each title. While the political situations causing the families to emigrate may be somewhat difficult for readers to comprehend, the stories of hardships endured and struggles to learn the ways of a new society are compelling and clearly related through dialogue and straight-forward writing. These books will not attract a wide audience, but they have value for students studying immigration.
