PreS-Gr 2—This refreshing series includes diverse titles related to citizenship, responsibility, immigration, and families. Each book is written and designed in a simple, homespun manner that will appeal to children. Real kids and families rather than models grace many of these pages. Work shows a boy's pride at earning stars for feeding his dog. Story, which explores several generations in the life of an ordinary family, contains charming vintage photos. This book, like Immigration, will inspire children to document their own histories. Time depicts loving families. Immigration is the gem in the series, introducing lesser-known stories of remarkable immigrants. Archival photography and manuscripts enliven the pages. Count takes a child's responsibility beyond the home into the larger community. Photos depict children cleaning up a beach and helping the elderly.
