Book for our time
EVERY American should read this book....especially our politicians. It educates the reader not only about the hardships that occur in the lives of American small business owners (in this story farmers) and how immigrants help impact their lives and business in a positive way. You learn about the fear immigrants face coming to a country for survival and encounters with caring people. Yes, we need immigration reform but will also need to remember we are humans and treat humans with understanding and compassion. Our country was founded and prosperous on the backs of immigrants, legal and illegal. Great historical ties in this story and the importance of friendship and family. Excellent read!!!! All classrooms would benefit from studying this story.
