"Khetam Dahi, the author of The Journey of an Immigrant: From Farm to Freedom, lets the main character, Tamara, recall significant events from her childhood as far back as when she was five living on a farm with her parents and nine siblings in a small town in Syria. She uses illustrations and great descriptive yet simple language that is appropriate for high-intermediate-level to advanced-level ESL courses, which can also be enjoyed by any reader.
Every chapter begins with a “Before You Read” brief summary section and a question, and at the end of each chapter, there are reading, writing, and vocabulary and grammar activities to enhance the readers’ experience by engaging them in the stories and introducing them to critical-thinking skills as they discuss the questions and look for evidence in the text to support their answers."
