"This immigration story is universal." --"School Library Journal,"
Dan Yaccarino's great-grandfather arrived at Ellis Island with a
small shovel and his parents' good advice: "Work hard, but remember
to enjoy life, and never forget your family." With simple text and
warm, colorful illustrations, Yaccarino recounts how the little
shovel was passed down through four generations of this
Italian-American family--along with the good advice.
It's a story that will have kids asking their parents and
grandparents: Where did "we" come from? How did our family make the
journey all the way to America?
"A shovel is just a shovel, but in Dan Yaccarino's hands it
becomes a way to dig deep into the past and honor all those who
helped make us who we are." --Eric Rohmann, winner of the Caldecott
Medal for "My Friend Rabbit"
""All the Way to America" is a charmer. Yaccarino's heartwarming
story rings clearly with truth, good cheer, and love." --Tomie
dePaola, winner of a Caldecott Honor Award for "Strega Nona"
"From the Hardcover edition."
