About This Book
This bright picture book tells of the migration of diverse immigrant and ethnic groups to North America, dating back to the travels of native peoples across the Bering Strait, and including the Atlantic slave trade and the journey of immigrants from Europe and Asia. The engaging text, aimed at readers ages 4 to 8, recounts the lives of various immigrant groups, celebrates their cultural contributions to America, and details the challenges of putting down roots in a new land.
The quest for political and religious freedom and the existence of laws to reduce immigration to the United States are also explored. A table of dates and immigration facts is included.
