After a long and thorough search, after Shaista Kaba Fatehali had exhausted every avenue in her quest for stories that Muslim immigrant children could relate to, the kindergarten teacher and doctoral student sat down and wrote one herself.
“Shaista cleverly lays out what we see in today’s society of families from the East settling in the West. Through the lens of a Muslim child named Asha, we see the challenges she faces as a newcomer, but realize that we are truly all the same. This book, Back Home, enables us to see that there is a higher level of awareness about how we are truly connected. The message behind Back Home is that peace is everywhere, and can be found within oneself.”
–The Honourable Mobina S.B. Jaffer, Q.C.Senator for British Columbia
