"Long an anchor text for school units on immigration and tolerance, Who Belongs Here? is now renewed in look and content. Teaching compassion for recent immigrants while sharing the important contributions made by immigrants of the past, this story is more relevant now than ever.

A compendium at the end of the book offers more detailed information about Pol, Pot, Ellis Island, and other topics in this text.
