This book is getting to introduce us to the history of different religions. It shows us the uniqueness of all people and what they believe and their values and praises.

I recommend this book to fifth graders because it is a little more complex and a more serious conversation to have with kids. This book is very informational about all the different religions. This can help kids realize that many places in the world do things completely different from their usuals.

This book provides the basics to what immigration is, where it started, who participates, and how it is conducted in America. It lets us know about the early settlers of the land and how they lived. It fast forwards to immigration today and how and why people are still migrating to America.
