Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4-Double-page spreads describe not only the Ellis Island experience during the peak immigration years 1892-1924, but also why people left their homelands, where they came from, their voyages, and what they did after gaining entry to the U.S. Abundant use is made of sometimes-grainy period photographs and reproductions as well as current-day renderings of how things looked in the early 20th century. Unfortunately, the effort to simplify material for young readers has produced several misleading and erroneous statements, most glaringly in the history of Samuel Ellis and Ellis Island. A U.S. map with immigration figures from various countries has a caption but no title, leaving it vague as to whether the figures refer to the entire country or just Ellis Island. Patricia Ryon Quiri's Ellis Island (Children's, 1998) covers similar material more accurately for the same age group.
