    1 thought on “Orphan Trains: An Interactive History Adventure”

    1. Really depressing, I’m glad only my oldest daughter read this one. Somehow the books on war (Revolutionary War, WWII, Boston Massacre) seem more appropriate because the kids feel like the good guys win in the end and there is a lot of broad history to learn. In this book, while it is fascinating to learn about this little-known piece of history, it felt like too big of an emotional toll in exchange for learning about such a small slice of history (“Hey kids, did you know that 100 years ago t [...]

    2. What a great idea for a book!!I was so impressed when I saw this new type of book, a Choose Your Own Adventure book in the history realm. What makes this idea of applying this format to history so great is that it makes crystal clear for students that history didn't just happen to the people of the past; history was made by very real people with very real perspectives that helped them form their very real choices that led to a very real new set of consequences and choices.History becomes for kid [...]

    3. I thought that this adaptation of the choose your own adventure format was actually really really good. It presents the history of the orphan trains that ran from 1854 to 1929 in this interactive format that also helps display the multiplicity of history rather than the singular story that is usually told in historical fiction novels or that overly generic tale in textbooks. The presentation of information is clear and nicely done, beginning with a factual introduction before letting the reader [...]

    4. This is a choose your own adventure in which you end up crying at most of the choices. This is a great interactive book about a very interesting part of American history. I think it's a fun way for kids to learn. I personally didn't like the format because I really wanted to just read the story. Orphan trains ran in the late 1800's until the great depression. Orphaned children were put on trains from New York, headed for the mid west. There, they hoped to find families to care for them.I wanted [...]

    5. For the lover of Choose Your Own Adventure Books! You can select three story paths from history. And each story path can lead to different endings for the good or the sad. Reality isn't always rainbows and sunshine. True, the stories aren't real, but they are reality based. The book ends with facts, additional resources and a timeline.This title was a great follow up to A Hope Undaunted (Winds of Change #1)by Julie Lessman.

    6. This is an interesting way to read history. You get to pretend to make choices and see what happened with each choice. I learned a lot about the orphan trains and what happened to unwanted children. This would be a good book to accompany reading Moon Over Manifest by Vanderpool or Orphan Train by Kline to gain more facts about the time period.

    7. This book was a nice story for kids to read about the orphan trains. I did not like the way the book gave you choices with different story lines and different endings. If you followed the directions you would skip all over the book to read it. I would have rather had individual different stories.

    8. My 8 year old had fun with this book. It provided an abbreviated way for him to get a grasp on this slice of history. Also, it helped provide the context for newsies.

    9. This is a book about the orphan trains from New York in the 19th century. It is also a choose your own adventure type of book so kids can go through multiple stories and see multiple view points. It is very informative and filled with facts.1. Why were there so many orphans in New York in the mid to late 1800's?2. Why did most people only adopt younger children?3. What did you choose for your first path? why?4. What was your second choice? Why?5. Now, go through the story again and make differen [...]
