Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
This book is one of the "You Choose Books," part of the "Interactive History Adventure" series. The book begins by setting the stage briefly for Mexican citizens struggling with economic hardships. One option for improving life is to move across the border to the United States. Readers are given three possible paths to pursue: as a migrant worker, as a domestic worker, or as a worker in a meatpacking plant. Once readers select a path to pursue, they begin new lives, with episodes ending with choices such as "stay quiet" or "complain to your crew leader." After completing one track, readers can go back and take a different path. The text is accompanied by photographs of well-known individuals such as Cesar Chavez and groups of ordinary citizens. The final statements acknowledge the difficulties immigrants face in their choice of coming to the United States. Back matter includes a timeline, reading suggestions, internet sites, a glossary, a bibliography, and an index. Reviewer: Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
