Synopsis: Relates the experiences of the youngest member of a Jewish immigrant family at home and at school in a small Texas town.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-5-- In this story set in the early 1920s, Minnie and her family strive to master the challenges of adjusting to American life and, as the only Jewish family in Dublin, Texas, to insure that the children learn about and appreciate their heritage. Nine-year-old Minnie is a high-spirited girl whose adventures typify both the unique aspects of her situation and the commonality of children's experiences. The warmth of a loving, caring family atmosphere permeates the story. Unfortunately, the stilted writing style will limit appeal. There is an awkwardness of both phrase and sentence structure that results in part from the limited use of contractions, and in part from the simple declarative sentences. The book reads like an easy reader; however, it does not have the controlled vocabulary, larger print, or open format that would make it accessible to that audience. Molly's Pilgrim (Lothrop, 1983) by Barbara Cohen presents a more poignant account of the Jewish immigrant experience. --Susan Kaminow, Arlington County Public Library, VA
