This book unpacks who transnational youth are, the transnational literacies they bring, and how to center these resources in the curriculum. Even though the text primarily features adolescents, elementary teachers can gain a sense of the experiences and resources of transnational children and families and the ways that learning extends beyond formal schooling..

This text spotlights the experiences of multilingual and immigrant children at B-Club, an after-school club for elementary children that seeks to learn from and build on their resources. Orellana explores how globalization and borders can constrain (by rigidly demarcating national belonging, movement, and identities) but also how children use their languages, literacies, and play to move across borders and to destabilize them as they connect with one another and create new forms of inclusion and meaning-making..
