Praise

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly:
“In this affectionate personal history, Yaccarino (Lawn to Lawn) traces his ancestry from Sorrento, Italy to New York City. . . Folksy and warm, this is a timely reminder that America is a nation of immigrants.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, March 2011:
“Yaccarino’s family is proudly Italian, but their immigration story is universal. Readers of varied backgrounds will be able to identify with the search for a better life in a new country, the passing along of values and heirlooms, and the addition of new family members. The story will make an excellent family-history discussion starter.”

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, February 2011:
“With clarity and deep affection, Yaccarino turns his family history into a story of enduring charm. . . . A gloriously warm celebration.”

All the Way to America is a charmer. Yaccarino’s heartwarming story rings clearly with truth, good cheer, and love.” —Tomie de Paola, winner of a Caldecott Honor Award for Strega Nona

“A shovel is just a shovel, but in Dan Yaccarino’s hands it becomes a way to dig deep into the past and honor all those who helped make us who we are.” —Eric Rohmann, winner of the Caldecott Medal for My Friend Rabbit
