Toby Belferメs great-grandmotherメs family lived happily in a small town in Poland. When a group of soldiers came into the town and threatened its inhabitants, the family decided to leave. It was hard coming to America in 1904. All of the passengers, including people from all over Europe, were nervous about learning English and adapting to the new laws and customs. As they arrived, all the immigrants had to form lines and answer question after question before they could see a doctor and be on their way.}}As Tobyメs grandmother tells her this story about their familyメs history, Toby gets especially excited about visiting Ellis Island on her upcoming vacation.}}About the Author and Illustrator}Gloria Teles Pushker grew up in New Orleans and was one of the few Jewish girls in the neighborhood. After earning her masterメs degree in education with a concentration in childrenメs literature, she decided to share her experiences with the world through Toby Belfer. Other titles in the series include Toby Belfer Never Had a Christmas Tree, Toby Belferメs Seder: A Passover Story Retold, Toby Belfer and the High Holy Days, and A Belfer Bar Mitzvah.}}Judith Hierstein couples the words with images, bringing Tobyメs world to life. After earning a B.A. in art from the University of Iowa, Hierstein realized that illustrating was a great way to encourage children to learn about other cultures. Ms. Hierstein resides in Waterloo, Iowa.
