Instagram Update: Gittel’s Journey: An Ellis Island Story by Lesléa Newman & Amy June Bates Thank you @abramschronicle @ACYBA @abramskids @abramsbooks “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.” #LesléaNewman #GittelsJourney #EllisIsland #historialfiction #picturebook #bookpost #bookblogger #freebie
