Ellis Island is more than just the National Museum of Immigration. It was the site where more than 70 percent of American immigrants arrived in the United States. It was the point of entry, the point where they were either approved or sent to infirmaries because they were too sick to be allowed entrance into the United States. Thousands passed through Ellis Island and thousands more remained on Ellis Island, denied entry until their health improved, which it often did not.
Its history goes back further than the entry point to American citizenship. And that's what Little Miss History wants to discover. She wants to learn all there is to know about Ellis Island and she wants to share her excitement with young readers. So Little Miss History goes to Ellis Island and tours the museum that now marks the spot where thousands of immigrants learned their fate - citizenship or not. She roams the halls and studies the historic plaques marking famous and not so famous people who entered the country via Ellis Island. And she tells her story, inviting young readers along for the ride as well as a fascinating study in American history.
Little Miss HISTORY Travels to ELLIS ISLAND is the sixth book in Barbara Ann Mojica's series following Little Miss History's travels. It's an exciting way to teach history to young readers as the readers can relate to the main character and share in her excitement and anticipation. The illustrations are wonderful and it looks like a travel diary as the illustrations carry the story while the text states historical facts and interesting tidbits. Very well done.
