About the book:

"Immigrants come from countries far, 

to dream their dreams beneath American stars.

Let’s see who’s here in this great place, 

a land of diversity: the United States!"

Our American Dream is written by Fiona McEntee, an award-winning nationally recognized immigration lawyer. As an immigrant, mom of two young children, and lawyer who fights for justice every day, Fiona wrote Our American Dream to help explain the importance of a diverse and welcoming America. Our American Dream is the first in a series that celebrates immigrants and immigration. You can find out more at ouramericandreambooks.com.
