Ida's Witness: The True Story of an Immigrant Girl (Young American Immigrants #1) (Hardcover)

(Biography) When young Ida contracts scarlet fever in 1880s Sweden, she almost loses her sight. After another brush with death, Ida learns that there is more than this life, disease has an end, and small miracles happen every day.

With new faith, Ida leaves her mother and brother and sails with her sister to America for a better life--free from poverty and persecution. But she knows no English. How will she share what she's learned in a strange country?

Set in an important era of American immigration history, this prequel to Anna's Prayer is a delightful, inspiring story for all ages and cultures (children 6 - 12 yrs., first - seventh grades; 35 full-color illustrations). 2,000 read-aloud words by Ida Lovisa Anderson retold by best-selling author/illustrator and media professor Karl Beckstrand (The Bridge of the Golden Wood--see 60+ multicultural books--click Karl Beckstrand above).
