Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This study addressed the problem that immigrant children face difficulties that may not be portrayed realistically in children's literature. Research questions included 1. Are the immigrant children's situations portrayed authentically, and in what ways? 2. How is the undocumented immigrant child depicted? 3. What are the emerging themes of the authentic literature, and how might they bring greater understanding to the authentic experiences for immigrant children?
