When you watch movies, TV or listen to the radio, have you ever considered that the entertainers could be immigrants? Why should this interest you? Well, because as a listener or viewer you're more interested in either the message or the entertainment. In the book, 12 Immigrants Who Made American Entertainment Great by Brandon Terrell, both young and old readers will be introduced to twelve entertainers from Hong Kong, Barbados, Canada, and England to Mexico who have made a difference with their art. Find out how people such as Lupita Nyong'o, Jackie Chan, Sofia Vergara, M. Night Shyamalan, and Charlize Theron came from other countries and have entertained us using their creative skills and diverse backgrounds. Also, the reader will discover that not only have these entertainers made a difference but they are humanitarians with either their own non-profit organizations or work with other non-profit organizations seeking to make a difference in the world.
I enjoyed this book tremendously because it provides a wealth of information. The reader will not only learn a lot about some wonderful entertainers who are immigrants but will be able to see the outstanding contributions that they're making, not only within the United States but all over the world. Also, the reader is given highlights like Think About It and will discover that immigrants come in all races, nationalities, and cultures; we are all immigrants. You will be surprised to learn about who immigrated to the United States. We do not see them as immigrants but instead enjoy what they have brought to the world from comedy to great movies, something that we all can enjoy and relate to. Brandon Terrell's 12 Immigrants Who Made American Entertainment Great is an excellent resource. Get your copy today and tell a friend.
