Synopsis: Book by Washburne, Carolyn Kott
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-Like other books on the immigrant experience, these titles begin with a description of a group's homeland(s), why people left, and their reception in the U.S. The authors then go on to discuss African American and Italian American cultural values as related to family, community, and religion and celebrations. Customs pertaining to food, clothing, language, music, etc. are described. Changing values over the past 30 years are noted, but there is no mention of current problems these groups face. A final chapter lists their contributions to American life in such fields as politics, science, sports, music, and the arts. Attractive, full-color and black-and-white photographs and boxes with historical tidbits, personal reminiscences, and even recipes enliven the pages; but the books are marred by occasional repetition, grammatical mistakes, and a few typos.
