  • [Spoiler Alert - review tells plot]: The Orphan of Ellis Island is a story about an orphan boy who falls asleep on a field trip to Ellis Island and wakes up in 1908 Italy where he meets three brothers who are his great grandfather and great uncles. Dominic experiences their emigration to America on the long voyage across the Atlantic and learns of their hopes and fears for a new life in America after leaving extreme poverty behind in their small Italian village. Among his many realizations about his past and his ancestors, Dominic learns to appreciate his life in America and his opportunities thanks to the sacrifices of his great grandfather and great uncles. I like this book because it teaches a lot about the struggles of immigrants coming to America in hope of a better life through a fictional tale that weaves historical lessons into an interesting story. - Calvin Volkmann

  • My granddaughter read this as part of Reading Olympics. As my grandparents came through Ellis Island, we were able to have a nice family history discussion based on her reading this book. She advised me I should read it, but she had taken it back to the school library. So I bought the book. Even though it's for children, I really enjoyed the book very much.

  • Loved this book. Used it with a group of fourth graders as part of our Immigration unit. We started reading it at the end of the year and the kids were so worried we wouldn't finish before summer vacation. They actually BEGGED to have reading everyday. Some parts were a little confusing to them so we had excellent lessons on rereading to confirm information. This book lent itself perfectly to predicting. The kids were so excited about what would happen next, they were interrupting our reading to make their predictions. An aspect that I really loved was the historical accuracy of the immigration process. Since we had nearly finished our Immigration unit when I discovered this book, the kids had lots of background knowledge about the process through nonfiction sources. This historical fiction book gave them a new perspective through the eyes of a character they became very attached to. Highly recommend this book for use during Immigration studies.

  • My daughter (age 10) came to appreciate this author after reading one of her books with her gifted class. When she's read it in the evenings I found myself entertained also. So, we purchased 2 other books by Elvira Woodruff, including this one, to read together.

  • Bought this book for my 7 year old son to do a book report on (2nd grader). I thought it would be too much for him to read and without illustrations and what not. I was surprised that he read it in two days and can't seem to put the book down, at one point falling asleep with the book in his hand! He was so engaged with the storyline updating me with Salvatore's condition and what not. This book is highly reccommended!

  • I love Elivra's stories. My first was George Washington's socks that I read to my kids years ago. I was so excited to find another one by her and doubly so because my family came from Italy at around this same time. I never understood by so many Italian immigrants were from Southern Italy. This book made me think about my Grandmother's life. Great job Ms. Woodruff. Thank you!

  • I really like this book. Having gone to Ellis Island, it was even more interesting.

  • Brand new. Fast shipping. Exactly as described.
