Where Did Your Family Come From? (Discovery Readers Series): A Book about Immigrants

Sending request ...

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- In easy-reader format, the Bergers define and describe the immigrant experience and cite four present-day examples. Boris and his parents left Russia because his father was offered a better job in the United States. The hard life of a farmer in Mexico led Rosa's family to relocate to Texas. Relatives urged Maria and her parents in Rome to join them in Chicago. Chang's father owned a shoe factory in Korea, but he decided to flee the repressive government. Some statements are oversimplified, such as, ``The United States is a land made up mostly of immigrants. You and I are most likely immigrants too.'' Their definition seems to include (incorrectly) anyone whose parents, grandparents, or other family members came to the U. S. long ago. Phrases are sometimes treated as sentences, and items in a series are presented in checklist fashion. The artist's familiar cartoonlike drawings are usually full color, occasionally in two colors. On the double-page spreads, much of the illustration is lost in the gutter. --Diane S. Marton, Arlington County Library, VA
