What would it be like to start over in a far-away country?
In Zakery’s Bridge, nine children share their families’ immigration journeys to Iowa.

Authors Kay Fenton Smith and Carol Roh Spaulding transport readers to the countries where each story begins.

Stories come to life with full-color photography from around the world.

Zakery’s Bridge is reaching out to readers of all ages and cultures. Proceeds from the book benefit cross-cultural learning through CultureALL and the Iowa International Center.

We hope you enjoy Zakery’s Bridge—one journey at a time!
