Gr 2-4-Large print, short paragraphs, and a clear, easy-to-read text make this an appropriate resource for beginning readers. Numerous black-and-white and full-color archival and contemporary photographs illustrate the text. A brief annotated list of Web sites and links to information about Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are also included. An up-to-date list for further reading, a glossary, and an index complete the book. Older students researching this famous landmark will want to consult R. Conrad Stein's The Story of Ellis Island (Children's Press, 1979).-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
