Ideal for teachers who teach ESL to immigrantsSept. 9 2000
- Published on Amazon.com
This is a wonderful true story about a family immigrating from Holland about 100 years ago. What makes this book special is it was written for immigrants from all over the world coming to America who are learning how to speak English. It is written very simply, but does not "talk down to" the adults learning our language. It's a wonderful story in and of itself, but people learning English as a second language will appreciate and relate to some of the difficulties encountered by this courageous family.
