About the Book

Papa has already left Poland, and Krysia longs to see him again. “First we must cross the ocean to get to Ellis Island in America,” says Mama.

“That’s where Papa is waiting for us.” Saying goodbye to her home is hard, and the ocean voyage is long and stormy, but finally, on Christmas Eve, Krysia sees the Statue of Liberty!

Dennis Nolan’s richly rendered illustrations powerfully evoke the uncertainty, wonder, and hope of this young immigrant’s experience. An Ellis Island Christmas is a holiday story to treasure, year after year.
