I'm an Immigrant Too!

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Ronojoy Ghosh. In singsongy four-line rhyming stanzas, a diverse group of children explain why their families came to Australia. All speak enthusiastically, but the book's super-upbeat text can be simplistic: "My country was Afghanistan-- / we fled when I was small. / Our boat capsized, but we were saved-- / now we're Australians all." There is no explanatory material. The bright, naive-style illustrations show different Australian landscapes.
