Abingdon Press Announces Children’s Book Dealing with Immigration and Cross-Cultural Friendships

Author: Amy Smith

NASHVILLE, July 2018— Abingdon Press has published a new book dealing with immigration and cross-cultural friendships, Luis y Mia/Mia and Luis.

Luis y Mia/Mia and Luis is a flip-over book that tells the story of two children, Luis and Mia, from each child’s perspective, in both English and Spanish. Their stories begin when Mia, who is white, makes a culturally insensitive remark to Luis, who is Mexican-American. Mia’s story explores important issues such as what makes someone American, biblical perspectives on immigrants, and how to make amends. Luis’s story explores issues such as cultural pride, challenges faced by immigrants, and forgiveness.
