PICTURE BOOK: All the Way to America by Dan Yaccarino

All the Way to America: The Story of a Big Italian Family and a Little Shovel

A clever story of several generations of one Italian family and traditions passed from generation to generation. I enjoyed this one and recommended it to several teachers at our book fair. The cleverness comes from the pattern that readers can find that link the stories from one generation of the family to another.

5 out of 5 stars
AR level of 4.2

Recommended for: elementary libraries, classroom libraries, history teachers talking about immigration, teachers talking about family traditions and heirlooms, etc. There's a lot to love in this book.
