Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Michigan is a true melting pot, settled by a number of ethnic groups that remain clearly defined today, such as the Poles, Dutch, Germans, Irish and Native Americans. Scandinavian, French, Scottish, Belgian and other groups also contributed to the development of the Wolverine State, as pioneers, miners, lumberjacks, farmers and factory workers. And immigration continues to reshape the state, author Schonberg notes: the 2000 census noted that one in five Michigan residents was born in another country. Their influence includes the usual tourist attractions, such as tulip festivals, German villages and Polish pride celebrations, but the author does not stop there. She provides a long list of "Michigan Achievers," a group that includes Malcolm X, Gilda Radner, Charles Lindbergh, Aretha Franklin, Gerald Ford, Madonna, Berry Gordy Jr., Lily Tomlin, Jeff Daniels and Magic Johnson. One serious omission in the book, however, is the state's burgeoning Arab-American community. The Arab population in Michigan grew by 51 percent between the 1990 and 2000 censuses, and the community grows by approximately 5,000 each year. The Muslim influence is particularly strong and, since 9/11, potentially controversial. It is too bad the author, or the publisher, did not see fit to write about this group. 2004, Heinemann Library, Ages 7 to 12.
