An illustrated book of short profiles of immigrant children aged 10 to 25.
Teaches sensitivity to foreign cultures and the value of diversity to middle school children and older. "Kids Like Me" consists of profiles of 23 real foreign-born adolescents and young adults.
Each chapter contains a short narrative in the form of an interview or self-description in the voice of the person being profiled along with a portrait that has been modified to prevent identification of the individual.
These stories are intended to help school children ages 10 years and over to understand classmates from other cultures, foster tolerance, intercultural awareness and sensitivity.
Written in a very accessible style, "Kids Like Me" also includes activities that can be done with friends or in a classroom that will help people to get to know each other better.
Additionally, there is a list of resources including suggested books and websites that parents and teachers and mentors can refer to.
