Angel Island Immigration

From the Set Behind the Curtain

The events surrounding immigration through the Angel Island station did not look the same to everyone involved. Step back in time and into the shoes of a male Chinese immigrant, a Chinese woman coming to join her immigrant husband, and a missionary woman trying to help Chinese immigrants as readers act out the scenes that took place in the midst of this historic event. Written with simplified, considerate text to help struggling readers, books in this series are made to build confidence as readers engage and read aloud. This book includes a table of contents, glossary, index, author biography, sidebars, and timelines.
