Celebrate what it means to be an immigrant and welcome diversity into your community in this uplifting, inclusive picture book. 

Like all people, immigrants have their own unique traits and bring their own special customs wherever they go—all things that make our country and world such a wonderful and vibrant place to live. The colors, music, language, and cultural heritage of immigrants jumps off the pages in Alyssa M. Gonzalez's vibrant artwork while Carolina Fernandez's words remind us to embrace living with and near people who bring their own history and traditions to our communities. After all, it’s important to remember: we all make up one human race!
