Redefining Immigrant Identity
Where am I from?
Neha has lived in many places around the world. She loves each of those places, but when someone in her new school asks her where she is from, she does not know what to say. She has lived in so many places, and she loves them all, how can she choose?
Neha’s character is a part of many American households. It is the story of a perceptive and sensitive young child caught between two or more cultures, and of parents trying to help her craft an identity that is whole and complete.
This book touches on issues not typically addressed in picture books, and fills an important void in children’s literature for this group of children who are particularly vulnerable to feeling marginalized and different.
