Product Details

Praise

* “A rich pairing of fact and imagination that provides genuine insight into the immigrant experience.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Excellent-quality archival photos or reproductions accompany the entries. A bibliography includes books, articles, interviews, websites, and silent films. This is a welcome companion to other books about Ellis Island, offering a format that can be used for oral presentations, class projects, or simply to read for enjoyment.” –School Library Journal

“Most notable for the extraordinary breadth of experiences and points of view presented, from immigrants to detainees, from cooks to carpenters, from photographers to curators. . . . A fascinating experiment in imagining the backstories of individuals mentioned in historical sources, and the curricular potential is considerable.” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
