Land of Hope is a very realistic book. It tells the reader about what it was like to be a Russian Jew traveling steerage class on a boat to Ellis Island. It also describes realistically what it was like to be a refuguee. This is a very good book. I would reccomend it to everyone who likes to read. Tara Kavaler 5th grade

What a realistic beautiful portrayal of life 100 years ago! The struggle of the immigrants to make it in the States is realistically portrayed. I actually felt like I was there in that awful-smelling steerage hold & the scariness of the storm. I thought it was interesting & neat that three girls from three different countries & religions form a strong bond. Ellis Island was really accurate too; I especially loved the scene where the immigrants see Ms. Liberty (I personally think she's the most beautiful statue in the world!). But what was really true-to-life was the struggle once the Levinskys get to the States & the portrayal of the sweatshop they're forced to work in seven days a week. The descriptions were so vivid that I could actually feel the heat & grime of the garment sweatshop as well as visualize the rampant poverty & noisiness of the Lower East Side of New York. It made me think of how we've come a long ways since, but still have a ways to go. A great historical read for history buffs!

I recieved this book as a present in 5th grade. i read it and loved it, it was only until now in 11th grade i recieved an assignment on immigration where we had to incorporate a novel with history. I remembered my favorite book Land Of Hope, so i chose to read it again and even though the reading level was for someone much younger i still loved it.

Land of Hope
By, Joan L. Nixon
This book is about a Jewish girl named Rebekah Levinsky and her family traveling to America. She has a mother, Father, a brother named Nessin, a brother named Jacob, a sister named Sofia, and a grandfather named Mordecai. When her family gets on the long boat ride to America, problems start. Though the trip is bad Rebekah makes friends on the trip. Reabekah starts to see that this trip might not be so bad. But once they get off the ship, there are a lot more problems to go.
To see here the end of this book read Land of Hope or some of the other books written by Joan Nixon. I liked this book because it was very fast pace and exciting. I think a lot of young girls out there would like it. Joan Nixion is a very good, talented writer. If you like romantic, exciting, and hart-braking books, you will probably love this one too. Take it from me, this book started out to be a book report, but I really liked it. Nixon has also written many other books like this that I am really positive you will like them!

Rebekah's Big Dreams
This book was about a Jewish family, The Levinsky's, who are escaping Russia to start a new, fresh start in America. They get to sail on a big ship, but their grandfather does not get to stay because he does not pass inspections. They must leave with out him. Rebekah gives the rest of the money to him so he can save up to come back to America later. When, they get to America , it is not the dream they were expecting. Rebekah wants to go to school, but she has to stay home to make a living for her family. She waits and whines for what seems like forever so read this book to see what happens. I thought this was a good book because it shows that even if you are poor you can still have dreams.

I rate this book, Land of Hope, one out of five stars. I disliked this book because to me, the story was too boring and obvious. Immediately, if you read about it, it says that the main character is struggling for her dream. It's obvious that in the end she'll end up achieving it. The story line was also boring because it was way too trivial and childlike. Because the characters didn't relaly come to live and because the supporting characters really aren't there to support it seems to lose any interest it really held. The plot could've been better had it more depth. There must be a million books like this out but much more intersting. Life in A New Country, which is part of the Dear America seires is also about a jewish girl who is immagreatd to America, only it is better. Overall, I really wouldn't recommend this book to anyone but since it is so short it probably woudln't take long to read. If it is used to see what it was like in Ellis Island around that time I don't think it would be a good reference. Although the facts seem real,there really isn't much fact in it.

It was an overall good book
I read this series as a young girl and I am now buying them for my sister who is ten years my junior. Books are well written and informative. It's a great way for girls to be introduced to American History!
