    1. Definitely children's fiction, I really liked this quick read. It captures for children a very difficult time of history, helping them internalize the experience, and realize just how difficult it would have been to be an orphan at that point of history. I like how i described how the heroin felt at the mercy of others, but came to realize she still had power and influence in the outcome of her life. Sweet ending.

    2. This is from a spin off series (of Nixon's Orphan Train Adventures)and brings back one the original orphan train orphans as a social worker. The stories are a little predictable but bring up some interesting historical context and would be interesting to the intended audience.

    3. I am fascinated by the orphan train I would prefer to read stories based on real life experiences, but this short novel was good too. My heart breaks for orphans like Aggie, who feel too young and unattractive to ever be adopted. I loved the heart of her forever family though!

    4. 1866. Aggie is homeless and lives in an Asylum for the homeless in New York. She's always in trouble with the head teacher. She doesn't know what to expect when she is shipped off on the Orphan Train.

    5. This children's book was a quick read. I chose it because my book club is reading Orphan Train and I was curious as to what the children's version was like. Very simple, but interesting.
