    Introducing this very readable history of American immigration, Krull describes the United States as a country united by shared values formed during the Age of Enlightenment and stated in the founding documents. The chapters that follow offer numerous examples of times when specific groups of immigrants were made to feel unwelcome based on criteria such as race, national origin, language, or religion. Particular attention is paid to women as immigrants, both in an early chapter and in later ones. While describing waves of immigrants, the reasons they came, and the difficulties they faced here, the book also includes a great many features introducing noteworthy individuals, pertinent quotes, or relevant ideas, events, or books. Appearing within the main text, yet with a different typeface and narrower margins, these features simultaneously support the main narrative and interrupt its flow. Illustrations include archival documents, prints, paintings, and many photos. In the closing chapters, Krull discusses some of the the issues surrounding immigration today, then looks toward the future. A clearly written, informative, and timely discussion of immigration. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
