Immigrant Stories: Home at Last
When does a new home feel like "home"? When you can speak a new language? When you make friends? When you realize that your neighbors share the same traditions from your native country?
These stories explore what home means to immigrants, from celebrations in the streets of New York City to realizing that you may have more in common with someone from a different country than you had thought. The stories give a poignant voice to children who are often homesick, which may be a helpful basis for discussion in ELL classrooms as students see the characters move towards a hopeful conclusion.
A number of related stories about immigrant children learning English are included in our ELL Stories booklist.
