Ellis Island by Molly Aloian covers the process for immigrants coming to Ellis Island. The book has facts about the Island, the checking-in process, and the different nationalities. There are various vocabulary words introduced & defined, as well as informative images.

A handsome book that teaches children about Ellis Island in a simple and frank manner. One of the many highlights of this book are the beautiful and informative pictures that accompany the text. I also appreciated that many nationalities, races and ethnic groups were discussed rather than focusing on just one. This book can help young children learn about immigration and find their own place in this complex and rich subject.

As someone who is a lover of both history and genealogy this book means something. The photographs and first hand account from immigrants adds to this book.

This is a really interesting reading! I've always found fascinating Ellis Island. Its story is an important part of American history. This book, thanks to pictures and old photos, explains how this place was important at the beginning of the 20th century. A perfect book for children!
