London: 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.
