Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melyssa Malinowski
You have emigrated from China to California during the mid 1800s. You dream for gold and a better life for yourself. You look for a place to live and a job. You must decide if you are going to stay in town and work for a hotel, or if you will work for a mining company. Maybe you will join a team of other Chinese workers and help build the Transcontinental Railroad. In this fascinating historical "You Choose" book, readers decide the path they will take through history. You decide what job you will take, where you will move, and what shifts you will work. Your choices will ultimately reveal whether you will live or die. Will you see the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, or will you be one of the numerous casualties of the time? This book is a fascinating way to look at history. The book is fast paced and simple to understand, encouraging readers to finish and then go back and choose another path to see the results. Designed for early grades, this book would be a welcome addition to any elementary school library. Reviewer: Melyssa Malinowski

    Would nt recommend

    It is written very poorly. I feel that anyone who has a the internet could have written this. Even though it is for kids it still should feel more like a book than a book report.
