From The Bookshelves: I Is for Immigrants by Selina Alko


Here's a book for the immprof parents of littles or clinical profs who like having books around for their clients' children to peruse: I Is for Immigrants by Selina Alko.

It's an alphabet book! Love those. A is for Ancester, Abuelita, African dance, Art, Ambition, and Aspire. B is for Backlava, Braids, Bubble Tea, Books, Bagels, and Bodega. All things worthy of celebration.

Here's the publisher's pitch:

What do African dance, samosas, and Japanese gardens have in common? They are all gifts the United States received from immigrants: the vibrant, multifaceted people who share their heritage and traditions to enrich the fabric of our daily lives. From Jewish delis to bagpipes, bodegas and Zen Buddhism, this joyful ABC journey is a celebration of immigrants: our neighbors, our friends.
