"Hannah I My Name" tells the story of a young Chinese girl whose family emigrates to the United States. She is anxious about so many things in their new home. She doesn't speak English and her father must work very hard at a poor job while they wait for his Green Card. You can follow her as she learns more and more about America and San Francisco - their new home town. This is a wonderful way to introduce your children to the difficulties foreign families face when they first come to America.
