School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 3-5-Both titles commence with information about these immigrants' countries and point out why people immigrated to the U.S. Legal and illegal methods of getting into America are covered. Where Haitians and Mexicans live once they arrive, the jobs they hold, and the hardships they face in a new land are briefly explained as are the contributions and traditions they bring to American culture. The positive contributions of some well-known immigrants bring the books to a close. A brief glossary and helpful pronunciation guide are provided for each title. The clear photos and maps help tell the story of these groups. Helpful adjuncts to multicultural and immigration units.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
