Coming to America: A Muslim Family’s Story by Bernard Wolf [in AsianWeek]

Coming to AmericaA touching story about an immigrant Muslim family of five from Egypt, which shows details from their everyday lives. The book is especially relevant now, in order to expose young readers to a people and a religion that have been wrongly demonized by the Western media. Wolf uses his photography to show how the family fluidly integrates their religious beliefs into their daily activities, and poignantly shows the parents’ hopes and dreams for the futures of their three children.
