How do migrants describe themselves and their experiences? As the world faces a migration crisis, there is an enhanced need for educational responses to the linguistic and cultural diversity of student bodies, and for consideration of migrant students at all levels of the curriculum. This book explores the stories of over 70 migrants from 41 countries around the world and examines the language they use when talking about their move to a new country and their experiences there. The book interprets common themes from the stories using metaphor and metonymy analysis to lead to more nuanced understandings of migration that have implications for language teachers. The stories also dispel many stereotypes relating to migration, serving as a reminder to us all to consider our own language when talking about this complex subject.

Crossing borders and boundaries, countries and cultures, they are the children of the military, diplomatic corps, international business, education and missions communities. They are called Third Culture Kids or Global Nomads, and the many benefits of their lifestyle – expanded worldview, multiplicity of languages, tolerance for difference – are often mitigated by recurring losses – of relationships, of stability, of permanent roots. They are part of an accelerating demographic that is only recently coming into visibility. In this groundbreaking collection, writers from around the world address issues of language acquisition and identity formation, childhood mobility and adaptation, memory and grief, and the artist’s struggle to articulate the experience of growing up global. And, woven like a thread through the entire collection, runs the individual’s search for belonging and a place called “home.” This book provides a major leap in understanding what it’s like to grow up among worlds. It is invaluable reading for the new global age.

Emma is only ten years old, but has already moved twice. Now, her parents are telling her the family is moving again. She's furious, sad, nervous, and a little excited, all at the same time. Unsure of how to tackle these conflicting emotions, she turns to B, her faithful teddy bear. While trying to come to terms with the challenges of another move, what Emma really wants is just to 'be at home'. As the journeys of Emma and B unfold, home changes once again, but home also begins to take on a new meaning that Emma can take with her wherever she goes. "In this delightful book you have the solution for how to translate what we, as adults, know about the TCK experience, into language and concepts that children who grow up globally can relate to. This book offers clear strategies for parents, educators, others who work with TCKs, and the TCKs themselves, on practical ways to translate theory into practices to help children navigate the chronic cycles of separation inherent in a TCK's childhood." Ruth E. Van Reken, Co-author, Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds, Co-founder, Families in Global Transition, www.FIGT.org "Beautifully written, B at Home: Emma Moves Again is a must for parents, teachers and organizations that support global nomads. Adults who work with families in global transition will find it added to their 'go to shelf'. Tidbits such as ' ... home will never ever be one place. It will be constantly moving. Like the waves, like the beads in the kaleidoscope' has made this one of my favorite books!" Julia Simens, Author, Emotional Resilience and the Expat Child: practical storytelling techniques that will strengthen the global family "This is a book that will help children and their parents (and stuffed animals!) with any transition or move.
