Unless you are an immigrant or the child of immigrants, the move from one country to another can be a hard thing for kids to understand. The transplanting of a life is about more than just a physical shift. It's about holding onto one's culture, ideals, and heritage during a shift onto new soil, and it's no small thing. In honor of such a move, here are 15 books to help your child grasp what it means to arrive in a new land.

This book is filled with illustrations and written descriptions by children who have immigrated to the United States. It's a beautiful first-hand account of what it's like for a child to come to a new place.
