I accessed a digital review copy of this book from the publisher.
The book was full of photographs and illustrations that supported the text. It would be good for a middle-grade reader or older.

This book is fantastic. I wish it was a required read for ALL citizens! The history of immigration is covered in chronological order. Something I think many people forget is that often ancestors were immigrants seeking the same things today's immigrants are seeking. I particularly loved the MYTH busters section at the back. This is such great information, especially pointing out that a greater percentage of immigrants go on to be business owners, entrepreneurs, or award winners! Great job, this is a MUST have for the classroom!!

A great book on immigration for teens. It covers what immigration is, historic immigration in the US, as well as modern topics. I think my favorite part was the dispelling of myths about immigration. Really well done and I think it would be eye-opening for teens.
