London, March 27: Actress Julianne Moore has written a book to help children understand different nationalities.
Moore’s mother Anne emigrated to America from Scotland when she was 10 years old and the 51-year-old says her experience inspired her to create the children’s picture book, “My Mom is a Foreigner”, aimed at helping kids whose parents come from another country.
“I know lots of women who have mums from Poland, Russia or Puerto Rico – somewhere that was considered different. This book is all about what it’s like to be the first generation in a new country,” contactmusic.com quoted Moore as saying.
“It’s really about children talking about what it is to have a parent from another country and all of the things that you grow up with and things that are difficult for you, like language differences,” she added.
