This book is fun and cartoon-like, though still occasionally poignant. Immigration is an absolutely central part of American history. Its so important for students to understand how and why immigration has a special significance for the United States. This book does a good job of conveying that, and could definitely be used in a unit on immigration. My only beef is that the Immigration Act of 1965 is only mentioned in an "Interesting Facts" section in the back of the book, not in the main text.

Post the pictures and the phrases on a bulletin board.

This book mentions important dates and facts, but more importantly celebrates the diversity of the United States. This book is a good book to give students background knowledge about immigration.

Excellent addition to any school/public library collection that needs a non-fiction account on the history of immigration to the US. Does not shy away from some of the darker sides of immigration (slavery, mistreatment of natives, etc.), but overall positive on how immigrants built the country into what it is today

Great book to use when talking about immigration. Also a good book to help sum up American history. This book explains why people immigrated as well who the different settlers were throughout time within the United States.

This book does a great job of summing up how we all got here - from the Native Americans to the immigrants who are still arriving today. I plan to use this with my kids, especially since I live in a city with a large refugee population.

This covers the history of arrivals in our county from the very beginning, includding "Native" Americans who Maestro states are immigrants as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and would recommend it to any reader with the time to complete it.
