  • Great book, good photographs. Would work for all ages

  • I have used this photojournalism/picturebook in the classroom before in the context of a critical analysis of western discourse on immigration and found it very useful.

  • A great way to teach my young kids a new perspective. The great photos in the book are very helpful. It is written in a way that my students and I can identify many similarities between us, to increase understanding.

  • The photo-essay Coming to America: A Muslim Family's Story is a brightly photographed realistic portrayal of a family's arrival in the United States from Alexandra, Egypt. The father arrives first, after winning a "green card lottery" offered to Egyptians who want to work in America. He worked long hours as a grocer in Queens, N.Y. until he was able to bring his family. Text and beautiful bright color photographs let the reader share the experiences of eight-year-old Rowan Mahmoud and her family once they all arrive. The photos capture the family at home, in school, and at the mosque. Their religion is an integral part of their life, but school, television, and playing with friends take up most of their time. We see the children in American schools with American teachers and schoolwork, but then return home to their Muslim and Egyptian traditions.

    Particularly useful in the classroom is the way Wolf tackles immigration issues for both adults and children; the hardships of learning a new language, the economic problems of finding an appropriate job, homesickness etc. At a time when many Muslim and Arab families in the U.S. feel subject to discriminatory governmental regulations and public attitudes, this book is especially welcome.

  • Tells the story of a Muslim family who moved from Alexandria Egypt to New York City. Colorful pictures depict family members at work, at school, at home, in the neighborhood. Promotes understanding of the challenges immigrants face and some basic information about Islam. Excellent for any age.
