“Research shows that using the same textbook for every student does not meet the needs of every student and often gives a single perspective…Zakery’s Bridge is one of the titles that we would like to put into the classrooms in our district.”
— Mark Stallman, Instructional Coach, Waukee South Middle School

“Students can relate to the real-life children in this book who are of their own age and living right here in Iowa today… Subject areas integrated within Zakery’s Bridge include History, Social Studies, Geography, and essential reading strategies.” — Amy Moore, Principal, Cowles Montessori

“In addition to offering children’s…immigration journeys, the book also offers factual information about the countries where the children come from along with beautiful visuals. Students can immerse themselves into the lives of these nine children and travel with them to their home countries by taking advantage of the resources Zakery’s Bridge presents.”
