Ann Armbruster is the author of several nonfiction books for children.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4?Two books that are full of vivid, color photographs, as well as some stunning vintage photos or artwork, with large easy-to-read captions. Readers will come away with an understanding of those who traveled the waterways and the difficulties they encountered shipping goods and moving large numbers of immigrants by water in years gone by. They will get a sense of how the lake and the seaway played an important role in the lives of those who settled near them and continue to do so. The geography of the area is discussed and visuals further enhance the presentation. Lists for further information include books, organizations, and on-line sites. These redesigned series entries are clearly written and attractive introductions to their subjects.?Jean-Marie Kliphuis, Nesconset Elementary School, NY
