    Immigrant Kids Guided Reading Set

    In the late 1800's and early 1900's, millions of immigrants sailed by the Statue of Liberty and took to heart her words: "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free ..."

    Immigrant kids sold newspapers, hauled firewood, worked in sweatshops, and did many other kinds of work. They played, fought in gangs, and became integrated into the life of America.

    Illustrated with 50 authentic and fascinating photographs.

Praise for Immigrant Kids

"A refreshingly un-woeful introduction to the experience of being a young urban immigrant around the turn of the century... [P]hotos make the scenes real and recollections of immigrant childhoods give them a personal dimension... Concise, graphic, and designed in every respect to catch and hold the reader's interest." — Kirkus Reviews
