Bessie's Pillow by Linda Bress Silbert (available through Strong Learning, Inc.) to review. This story is based on a true story, of a young girl--an immigrant from Lithuania desiring asylum in America during the early 1900's.
About Bessie's Pillow
My Thoughts on Bessie's Pillow
This is a great book--I think that adult women would probably find it the most interesting, unless you have a history loving teenager. I don't really think of this book as being geared towards the boys--much like the Diary of Anne Frank isn't as much a "boy" book. I would definitely add this to any early American literature collection--it gives valuable insight into basic home life during the early to mid 1900's. Also a great reminder that the Jewish faith had troubles that began long before Hitler rose to power.
