    1. A very good book about a time period that we don't hear too much about. Since I do a lot of reading with Third Graders, I wanted to preread some of the books in the Orphan Train Children series and I am enjoying them.

    2. So glad there were caring people to bring comfort into the lives of sad, lonely children. (The Children's Aid Society of New York City, and loving families to take them into their homes.

    3. I thot of the book that she who writes the story must tell the story about the girl who has a doll and I think she loves dolls and she came to my house and we are going to school and we are cool to day and to be the first ones be like the cool Kids to be cool to.

    4. I absolutely loved the Orphan Train Children series. There were several books in this series and though works of fiction were truly telling profiles of what happened to approximately 200,000 children that rode on these trains. Between 1853 and 1929 children from the East Coast were put trains to be "placed out" with families across the middle west and west. Most of them were orphans and living on the streets or living in tenements in horrible unsanitary conditions.About half of the children were [...]

    5. This awesome chapter book,the genre is historical fiction.It's about this girl that is name Lucy that not had a mom bacause she died and dad too.So one friend said about a Orphan Train Children that is about a train the takes children to new families so Lucy gets someone that her mom is bad but his dad is good.Her dream was that she had a sister that would love her it did come true.I have schema whet this when my mom nided to take me whet other people because she was going somewhere.I have a que [...]

    6. Lucy's mother has dies and Lucy is trying to survive on the streets of New York in 1866. She hears about the Children's Aid Society and joins it to try to find a family that will love her. The family that takes "adopts" Lucy has a daughter who is mildly retarded. Thankfully, Lucy's mother had taught her to accept people as they are before she died. Lucy develops a friendship Emma even though Emma's own mother can't understand Emma. This is a good story.

    7. We really enjoyed reading this simple story based on a piece of history we were not familiar with. Reading this snippet shot of the particular era has sparked us to read up more of our history. Our children should all be reading these types of stories that prompt you to be more grateful for our current lives and thankful for our history.

    8. After Lucy loses her mother, she turns to the Children's Aid Society in NYC who then send her on one of the many orphan trains. On an easier level with a happy outcome but still fairly realistic about the plight of city orphans.
