Changing Cultural Landscapes (106)

61iFlPZe8RL._SX398_BO1,204,203,200_[1]This is a GREAT picture book about human migration and settlement. And since we have had a lot of refugees coming from many different places, it is a book that most kids should read.

Given the refugee crisis that we are experiencing right now, many small towns and cities will never be the same. They will affected I believe very positively by migration and settlement.

People are migrating every day to new areas in the world. Everyone’s lives change by migrant individuals. People who migrate experience a lot of anxiety because they usually feel some sort of culture shift that they were not used to. Many migrants don’t even speak the language that is native to the area they are migrating to. I cannot believe how hard that would be for individuals. Yet, hundreds of thousands of people are migrating in a hopeful manner. I find them so inspiring and wonderful be around.

Refugees also are not used to the food that is a part of the new area that they are moving to. So, there are changes to their food intake. But all of them seem to enjoy the newness of the situation and they embrace it.

Refugees also have to adapt to new environments and schools as well as shopping centers to buy food. Wow!  What a huge change for them. Yet, they all seem to embrace all the changes.

I think this book is a must-read for all kids of all ages. It can also be used for school projects at all age levels.
