School Library Journal (November 1, 2014)
Gr 4-6-This solid series celebrates the diversity of the United States and explores the contributions immigrants have made to the culture and economy. Giving practical reasons for why the study of immigrant issues are important, the authors strive to put a human face on the subject of immigration and help readers think more deeply about the topics. Using clear, simple language, the series condenses complicated issues into easily understandable parts and provides information on relevant subjects, including how to become a U.S. citizen and the rights of undocumented immigrants. The texts are informative, though never intimidating, and full-color, captioned photos enhance the narratives. A valuable series. (c) Copyright 2014.
