Welcoming Library Changing How We Teach Immigration

Many schools that have hosted the Welcoming Library have reworked the way they study immigration. Ellis Island is now joined by modern immigration from the Sudan, Syria, and Central America thanks to exposure to these picture books and companion materials.

“4th grade teachers had the opportunity to look at all the books and choose which ones they want to add to their permanent collections for the immigration unit they do every year.”
