Booklist - Carolyn Phelan

"The Children’s True Stories: Migration series records the backgrounds and views of people who migrated during childhood. Each book offers general information about its topic and spotlights four individuals, telling why they left their homelands and how things worked out afterward. Sometimes based on interviews, sometimes on historical records, these accounts personalize the study of migration. Each colorful double-page spread balances paragraphs of text with illustrations, captions, and brief sidebars. In volumes with historical content, color photographs of sites and maps appear alongside archival photos and prints. Back matter includes a glossary and lists of books, websites, and places to visit. "Jewish Migration" places the stories of four twentieth-century migrants within a broader context that looks at historical prejudice, the state Israel, and ongoing immigration. "Middle Eastern Migration" introduces four refugees who fled their countries in wartime, including children from Palestine (1948), Lebanon (1960), Afghanistan (2002), and Iraq (2004). "Migration from Africa" begins with the slave trade but also includes the Great Migration to northern cities, Caribbean emigration, and African migration today. "Nineteenth Century Migration to America" discusses immigrants from Scotland, China, Ireland, and Italy. This series ranges further afield than most books on migration, and the focus on individual children adds to its appeal. – Carolyn Phelan Booklist January 1 & 15, 2012 Issue" - Booklist

Library Media Connection - Melinda Miller

"This series reviews some of the historical migrations that have occurred throughout the world through the eyes of children. Each title highlights four real children’s stories. Additional information introduces, and then summarizes, the area covered and the migrations that happened. All five have helpful features: photographs; drawings; maps and a "mapping migration" page; and places to visit. Fact boxes provide additional details: "daily life," "number crunching," "migrants’ lives," "helping hand," and "on the scene". They provide interesting facts in a pleasant, easy-to-understand layout and are well-placed throughout each book. The stories of these children are eye-opening and provide young learners a unique perspective and an understanding of the issues and hardships that the children who made these journeys had to endure.
