The Somali-American Journey

From the Series The American Journey

In this book, leveled text and vibrant, full-color photographs help readers to understand the journeys that Somali-Americans took to the United States. This title also introduces readers to their country of origin, reasons for leaving their former home, the steps and challenges to becoming a U.S. citizen, and the ways in which they assimilate to life in America while bringing their cultures and traditions.

An infographic enhances understanding of this journey, and What Do You Think? sidebars encourage deeper inquiry. An activity allows readers to further explore. The Somali-American Journey also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, a glossary, and an index.

The Somali-American Journey is part of Jump!’s The American Journey series.
