Though the series is wonderful for students in third and fourth grades, I have found that older students enjoy the series as well.

We are now just reading this for homeschool. Great information, but not boring for a 3rd grader. There is some wonderful black and white photos inside.

This series is excellent for children interested in biographies. I found the book to be informative, yet easy to read. Though the series is wonderful for students in third and fourth grades, I have found that older students enjoy the series as well. As an adult, it was a quick read, yet accurate. Excellent for first "reports." The timelines at the end of the books are quite relevant.

This was very informative. I got me thinking about if my Dutch grandparents came through Ellis Island.
I appreciate the Email addresses to look up my family name.
Thank you for this quick informative great read.

I discovered this series when looking for books for a 3rd grade teacher who teaches informational text in a urban elementary school. The students loved this series, especially the girls. Very well received by the teacher and students.
