Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Gr. 4-6. Immigration to the U.S. in the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries is the subject of these titles in the new Coming to America series. Children in settled and in newly emigrated families from everywhere will welcome the look back, and those back, and those with families will from Germany and Scandinavia will find this a good place to start researching family history, for school and for personal interest. Each title takes a quick look a where the immigrants came from, why they left their arrival in the U.S., their struggle to keep their traditions, and their contributions to this country. They type is small and the writing style is flat, but the facts are solid, and the open, magazine-style design includes historical photos on each page and lots of sidebars and features, including a map, craft ideas, and recipes. A glossary, a bibliography, and a list of museums and Web sites are appended. More titles are listed in the Series Roundup in this issue.
Children's Literature
Today we take for granted that America is our home. With shopping malls and fast food restaurants right around the corner, it is hard for us to picture it as undeveloped and open land ripe for farming. It is also hard for us to imagine living in conditions so poor and unjust that we would pick up all that we could carry and travel halfway around the world in search of a better life. This exceptional educational tool can help us better understand what it was like for Scandinavian immigrants during the 1800s and early 1900s. It depicts why they left, what it was like traveling here, and what happened when they arrived. It also pays tribute to famous Scandinavians and to the many contributions they have made to our modern society. The book also provides information about where to learn, suggesting books, Internet sites, and places to write to. Furthermore, it gives advice about how to start a genealogical search for relatives if you have a family heritage in Norway, Sweden, or Denmark. This is just one resource in the "Coming to America" series by Blue Earth Books that also includes books about Chinese, Italian, Irish, German, and Japanese immigrants.

ea vol: 32p. (Coming to America Series). illus. maps. photos. reprods. chron. further reading. glossary. index. Web sites. CIP. Capstone/Blue Earth. 2001. PLB $16.95. Gr 3-6-These series entries describe early immigrants from each region, life in the homeland, the voyage, arriving and surviving in America, and keeping traditions. They are similar in factual content to Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler's The Irish American Family Album (1995; o.p.) and The Scandinavian American Family Album (1997, both Oxford), but on a more accessible reading level. The handsome, wide format contains sepia-toned period photographs that fade into the page, along with full-color reproductions of various objects, from a shamrock plant to Danish-made reed shoes. Sidebars contain short first-person accounts. The interesting texts display some inconsistencies when citing figures, and topics are sometimes mentioned briefly in more than one place. Norwegian, Swedish, and Danish Immigrants treats all groups together, rather than each separately. The organization and the inclusion of recipes and suggested activities (growing potatoes in a pot, making Scandinavian flags, doing basic genealogy) make these volumes a good browsing choice.-Diane S.
