Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-This series features the doll from the 1930 Newbery Medal winner, Hitty: Her First Hundred Years. Hitty, who has been sitting for six months in an antique store in New York City, is purchased by a wealthy man for his spoiled daughter. Louisa thinks Hitty is ugly and useless and won't play with her. However, to spite her friend who wants to play with her new toy, she takes the doll on the family's trip to Italy, where Hitty is lost in Naples and found by a man who gives her to his niece, who loves her. When Fiorella and her family leave for the United States, she takes the doll with her. Unfortunately, the characters are wooden; using Hitty to tell an immigrant's story falls flat, and the telling is dry and uninteresting. Buy only if you have readers desperate for immigration doll stories.-Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    pleasant reading

    The inside front cover of Ellis Island Days says "Hitty: Her First Hundred Years, by Rachel Field, was published in 1929 and awarded the John Newbery Medal in 1930. Since then, Hitty and her adventures through history have delighted countless readers. Now, Aladdin Paperbacks brings you Hitty's Travels in our Ready-for-Chapters format. Perfect for beginning readers, Hitty's new adventures are an exciting introduction to the beloved doll as she travels far and wide,
    sharing her historical experiences along the way." There are three others in the series: Civil War Days, Gold Rush Days, and Voting Rights Days.
    In Ellis Island Days, Hitty is purchased in 1908 by a wealthy man from Yonkers, NY, for his daughter, Louisa, who thinks the doll is stupid. When the family goes to Italy for the health of Louisa's brother, Louisa loses Hitty (whether accidentally or intentionally Hitty does not know). The doll is found by a young Italian man who takes her home to his niece. This Italian family just happens to be emigrating to New York City, so Hitty ends up back in New York. I have never read Hitty: Her First Hundred Years, but it has been highly recommended and this book makes me want to do so. Louisa is quite a spoiled brat, but her bad behavior is set in contrast to the fondness for Hitty on the part of the Italian girl, Fiorella. And the historical background information is both interesting and educational. It is pleasant reading that would probably be most enjoyed by girls but is suitable for anyone--Karen checked it out for Jeremy and he seemed to like it.

    Very nice book for young children

    I have never read Rachel Field's Hitty: Her First Hundred Years, but this volume of some new stories about her makes me want to read the original. It is a very pleasant read that would appeal mostly to girls but is suitable for anyone.

    A wonderfully imaginative journey

    This was the most fasinating book my daughter and I have read in a while. The story is very well written. My daughter couldn't wait to read this book every night. It is a wonderful concept to have the entire story told by a doll. The only downfall to the book is that it contains alot of period related words and it took time going over the meanings with my 8 year old. She can't wait to get the rest of the series!!!!
