I would have to describe this book as simple, engaging and sweet. It was well written, and for such a simple story the characterization was done just right. I was a little nervous at how the story would end, but it was very fitting.
I really liked this book. It’s short, sweet and very age level appropriate. It also packs a punch in terms of historical content. The illustrations and story line give the reader a vivid picture of what it was like to travel west as an immigrant.
