It reflects an extraordinary understanding of the complexities that new immigrant and refugee children around the world face in school in their host countries...Although its focus is on preschool and elementary immigrant children and their families, application can easily be made for children of all ages and grades."--Karen Loerke, Alberta Journal of Educational Research Summer 2009, Volume 55.2
