Orphan Train
by Verla Kay & Ken Stark

In her trademark short, rhyming text, Kay relays the orphan train experience of three siblings whose parents have died of typhoid fever. Ken Stark's vibrant illustrations are full of historical details.

We agree with School Library Journal, who promises that this book will be "a good introduction to the subject" for children.
