Item Description...
Immigrating to America in hopes of having a better life, Hanna and her family fall onto hard times until a startling find on the street helps make all of their dreams come true. 10,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
Even before they immigrate to America, Hanna and her family dream of the new life they will have there. "You will see, Hanna," Papa said. "There are streets of gold." But when they arrive, they find life very different from what they had imagined. Their apartment is small and Hanna and her brothers must sleep on a mattress on the floor. Mama spends her days knitting shawls and sweaters to sell on the streets but no one stops to buy. And Papa can find no work. Hanna looks everywhere for the gold Papa promised them but it is not to be found. What will happen to their dream of a new, better life in America? One day a seemingly insignificant find on a slushy street leads to an opportunity for a brighter future. And like many others before them, Hanna and her family realize that through small steps and hard work they can make their American dream come true.

The Junk Man's Daughter  Jun 19, 2008
Young Hannah dreams of her new life in America where the streets are "paved with gold." Her enthusiasm fades when the family struggles to make their way in their new home. When Hannah and her brothers gather bottles, cans, and other "junk," a family business is born. Through difficulty and sacrifice, the family grows a successful enterprise. Sonia Levitan has created a heartwarming story about hope, hard work, and determination. Young readers will empathize with Hannah and her desire for a better life. The vibrant, realistic illustrations bring the characters to life. The visual contrast between the old country and the big city is striking. With the turn of a page, readers will feel like they are collecting and sorting junk right alongside Hannah and her family. Although the story has no specific Jewish content aside from the names of the characters, it clearly honors the Jewish immigrant's experience, and brings to mind family stories that have been passed down from generation to generation. The Junk Man's Daughter is a lovely picture book. Ages 5-8. Reviewed by Barbara Bietz
K. Strong  Apr 5, 2008
Really enjoyed the story. Flowed nicely with great illustration . The picture really capture the story even my 15year old enjoyed it. Gives a feeling of hope in a trouble age today, because the opportunity is still out there we just have to work for it and that is what has been forgotten. Wonderful chance to explain my own families hereitage and travel to the U.S. in the late 1700's..
Great for kids like me  Dec 16, 2007
I think this book shows kids to follow their dreams and that nothing is impossible. I recommend it for kids aged 4-8 who are interested in pursuing thier dreams.
