Jewish Values: Toby Belfer Visits Ellis Island

Publisher: 
Publication Year: 
2004
Number of Pages: 
32 p.
Note: 
Toby's Gram tells her the story of Gram's mother, Raezel, who came to America from Poland with her parents and six siblings. The reasons why Jews emigrated, their experiences aboard ship and at Ellis Island, and their subsequent absorbtion into American life are all touched upon, making this a pleasant introduction to immigration for primary age children and a good book for celebrating, in 2004, the 350th anniversary of Jews in America. The illustrations are, as usual for the Toby Belfer stories, stylish and engaging.
