VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 3/2/11)—Judson Press has announced that a virtual book tour will launch the release of Listen to the Children: Conversations with Immigrant Families, the new bilingual resource by Elizabeth Conde-Frazier. Listen to the Children will be featured on more than a dozen blogs and websites from March 1–8, 2011. Participants include high profile sites such as Citizen Orange, Immigration and the Church (National Catholic Reporter), Undocumented.tv, ImmigrationProf, and Latino Leadership Circle. Bloggers will offer reviews and reflections on the book, and feature guest posts and interviews with the author.
Listen to the Children/Escuchemos a los niños brings the human realities of immigration to life as it invites the reader to eavesdrop on fictionalized conversations between immigrant parents, their children, and their caregivers. Both warm and practical, the book offers unique insight into the emotions and perceptions of immigrant families and addresses:
- How and why adults make the decision to emigrate from their homeland
- How the separation affects children
- The challenges eventual reunification of the family brings
Pastor, educator, and immigrant advocate Elizabeth Conde-Frazier explores these and other questions and shows the reader how to support these children in our churches, schools, and communities. More information about the book and blog tour can be found at www.judsonpress.com/blogtour.cfm.
