Gittel's Journey: An Ellis Island Story By Lesléa Newman, illustrated by Amy June Bates.

Gittel and her mother were supposed to immigrate to America together, but when her mother is stopped by the health inspector, Gittel must make the journey alone. Her mother writes her cousin's address in New York on a piece of paper. However, when Gittel arrives at Ellis Island, she discovers the ink has run and the address is illegible! How will she find her family? Both a heart-wrenching and heartwarming story, Gittel's Journey offers a fresh perspective on the immigration journey to Ellis Island. The book includes an author's note explaining how Gittel's story is based on the journey to America taken by Lesléa Newman's grandmother and family friend.

Hardcover, 48 pages. Recommended ages 5 - 8, grades kindergarten - 3.

From the exhibition Finding Home: Four Artists' Journeys on view November 9, 2019 through May 25, 2020 at Norman Rockwell Museum.
