Children's LiteratureImmigration is the process a person undertakes when they leave one country to become a permanent resident of another. This book focuses on immigration to the United States. Not everyone is allowed to immigrate to the U.S. A person must meet specific qualifications and these guidelines, as well as the reasons for denying permission to enter the United States, are given. The immigration process itself can be long and complex. There is a multitude of steps and an abundance of paperwork. This book uses simple terms and clearly explains what immigration is, who can immigrate to the United States, and how to do it. A final chapter discusses some of the challenges and problems many people face once their immigration is complete. Colorful photographs are on almost every page. There is also a helpful appendix. This book provides excellent introductory information and it is strongly recommended for any elementary unit on immigration. This title is part of the "True Books on Civics" series. 2004, Children's Press/Scholastic, and Ages 8 to 12.
