Book No. 57.
A woman tells her granddaughter the story of her immigration to America and, like the child, I wanted to hear the story again.
There are many immigration stories and perhaps the enjoyment we find in them is knowing that America has only grown stronger with each new culture brought to our shores. The journey is not easy, but it is filled with hope and with promises.
In the grandmother's story, she and her brother left their home to journey across the ocean to America, where they would meet up with their Mama, Papa, and sister. The text is minimal. The pictures are overcrowded where they need to be.
It works really, really well. I'm thankful to have found this book and this author.
