Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5-- All of the students in Rosie's class are assigned a project to investigate their family ancestory and produce a page illustrating it for a book entitled The USA Is Us . When Rosy begins to think that her history might be dull compared to the wealth or daring adventures experienced by other students' families, she embellishs her project to impress her classmates. On the day of the presentations, however, she discovers a graceful way to give her account a realistic focus. The book incorporates the experiences of a variety of ethnic groups throughout this country's development, including those who were slaves, built of the railroads, staffed the sweatshops, and escaped pogroms and famine. Underlying the action is a theme of respect, not only for one another's backgrounds but also for one's own. This is a fast-paced chapter book with characters as individual as their backgrounds. It has rich potential for social studies and language arts extension, and is a refreshing approach to an important part of the United States--its people and their heritage. --Cheryl Cufari, N. A.
