    One Reply to “What Was Ellis Island?”

    1. This is worthwhile read for anyone, and I think this would make a good impression on the intended audience of 8-12 year-olds. I love how the book focuses on the bravery that immigrants show in moving to a new country. The courage it must have taken to sell all your worldly goods and take a chance loading your family onto a steamer to cross an ocean to a new land of unknowns is striking indeed. My heart goes out to those with children making such a trip. Nice little history lesson that obviously [...]

    2. I read What Was Ellis Island? to get a better sense of what the series What Was/Who Was/Who Is series is like.The text is well written and easy to read. Clean line art drawings enhance the text. An occasional call out page goes into greater depth about the topic. Additional features include a photograph section in the middle, a timeline, and a bibliography. Recommended to readers of shorter chapter books and up.

    3. Simple book that explained how immigrants came to America and what they went through once they were here. After reading this book, I appreciate the hardships my grandparents endured to have a better life.

    4. I love the Who was/What was series. I read this one because we'd just visited Ellis Island and I wanted a quick synopsis of what had gone on there.

    5. It was great! I learned so much about Ellis Island! I read it to my 4 year old who asked a lot of questions.

    6. What a great series of books. My niece is going to be a teacher and has asked for these to create her class library. I've been buying them for her and just had to read this one since my grandparents come through Ellis Island. What a great book and full of things I didn't know. I highly recommend this book and the series or What Was and Who Was/Who Is.

    7. The book is meant to be for children. but I'd recommend it to anybody who would like to know a few facts about Ellis Island, a place where more than 2.000.000 immigrants from every part of the world passed to start a new life. I can only imagine the state in which those people would reach a new world, for most of them a place where they couldn't even understand what people would say and many didn't even know where to go or how to survive. Ellis Island was a compulsory passage for those people, q [...]

    8. "What was Ellis Island"by Patricia Demuth gave a lot detail about Ellis than my social studies did. The book was about a biography about Ellis Island. The book taught me a lot of history. Like when they were redoing the building they found poems under the walls.What I like about the book was the intriguing information about the history about the Island.I learned a lot about the island.One thing I didn't like about the book was that there was picturesI recommend this book to people who are intere [...]

    9. Personal Reaction: This book is part of a larger series of informational children's books. Personally, I did not learn about Ellis Island until around 5th grade, so I think the use of this book depends on the curriculum used at a particular school. I found it very informative and a nice change from what students learn in their text books which can be dry sometimes.Purpose: independent reading, nonfiction, learning about Ellis Island, book report, social studies

    10. OBOB 2016, book 5.I don't think there's a book in this series I wouldn't like. This one was very interesting and meaningful, but not as much as some of the others I've read. That is maybe because none of my relatives came through Ellis island though. The book did make me want to visit Ellis island very much! I'll make all my kids read the book before we visit. Very worthwhile read, as are all the books in the series.

    11. This was a quick read which I did in preparation for OBOB 2015-2016. The book gave an account of the creation of Ellis Island, the process that the immigrants endured in order to pass through, and changes in U.S. immigration policy through the years. It also highlights some of the more famous immigrants that passed through Ellis Island and the eventual close and renovation of Ellis Island as a national park. Very interesting!

    12. 1, GROSSET& DUNLAP level? 2,10/23 45 min 10/26 20 min 3, hope, New York, immigrants, medical check up, steerage, acres4 actually, I didn't know anything about the Ellis Island. this book taught me many information. it's good to know. 5, this book include some difficult words. therefore, I sometime got boring while reading. I studying about an American history at seminar class so I'm going to keep reading this book.

    13. another OBOB title for 2015-16. This series is great for kids and adults alike. Thought provoking and intense, I just cannot imagine having to move across the world for a better life. It makes me appreciate how hard our ancestors fought for their families. Again, another title I will recommend to kids even after OBOB is over.

    14. Owen and I read this together and enjoyed the glimpse into what it was like for Owen's Opa and his Great-opa and Great-Oma as they were some of the millions who came into America through Ellis Island. Owen thought he didn't want to read this one on the OBOB list until I mentioned how significant Ellis Island is to our family.

    15. This is a short non-fiction title detailing the history of Ellis Island along with stories of some of the folks who passed through its gate. While I wasn't glued, I felt like this title did a good job at distilling a lot of information into chunks that could be handled by young readers. Read in preparation for the Oregon Battle of the Books battles of 2016.

    16. Ellis IslandThis was very informative. I got me thinking about if my Dutch grandparents came through Ellis Island.I appreciate the Email addresses to look up my family name.Thank you for this quick informative great read.

    17. This book provides a detailed history of Ellis Island and includes a comprehensive timeline of important events and photos from primary sources.

    18. I feel like Ellis Island has such a rich history, an interesting history, one that should be explored and delved into. This book provides bare minimum easy, light, facts for children. Simple, boring.

    19. great information. starting to think the writing in this stores isn't top notch but I still like it a lot.

    20. Where has this series been all my life? This book was a fantastic way to learn about Ellis Island. My son and I learned great information. I would totally read this book without my kids.

    21. I like this series but find some books more interesting than others. This one supplied a lot of good information and was a good quick read. Great to back up a unit on immigration.
