"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

"Hope and Tears" is an exceptional book; a great family 'read.' Imagine Dad organizing a summer trip while the kids sketch themselves as young immigrants, & grandma is inspired to write haiku. History with family connections is a winning combination. When will those "Ellis Island Voices" be available on my NOOK?
