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
