Review:
More stories of orphan train riders grace this sequel to the award-winning Orphan Train Rider: One Boy's True Story by the same author. While the accounts are endlessly fascinating, there is a bit of randomness to the structure of this book. Children will be fascinated by the early recollections of the "riders," though there is much that is repetitive. Young readers may be less interested in the adult searches and reunions of brothers, sisters, and birth parents. For those who can't get enough of this historical phenomenon, this book serves them well.
