Journey to Ellis Island by Carol Bierman

This book follows a Russian boy and his family on their journey to the United States in the 1920s.  Although presented as a narrative, this true story is supplemented with real photographs, postcards and personal items from the Weinstein family.  Journey to Ellis Island does a great job of presenting immigration topics in a meaningful way, through the eyes of real people who experienced settling in a foreign country.  This is a great book for middle school readers with a little guidance from parents along the way.
