It's a book for kids. And for that purpose it is good. Obviously, simplified. I mean a) it's in the language of children, and b) it covers the topic of slavery on 50 pages. With illustrations, read more sections and think-further questions.

Don't get me started on how simplified and positively she presents the inclusion of African-American's in the armed forces. BUT, again, it is a first introduction for kids. For that purpose it is good. And a good teacher can make a lot of it.

Part of the African-American History series, this 48 page book introduces the topic of slavery in the US. It gives a little background on how slavery came to the colonies, how it spread, how it divided the nation, how the antislavery movement spread, and the end of slavery.
Some features include: primary source photographs and documents; multiple prompts and activity ideas for writing, reading, and critical thinking; charts, graphs, diagrams, timelines, maps, a glossary, an index, and some limite

This is a look at slavery's origins and lifespan in the United States. The information presented is succinct in nature and the author prompts the reader to go a little deeper with some probing questions. There are numerous instances throughout the book that attempt to make the facts more meaningful to the reader. Back matter includes activities and writing prompts, a glossary, an index, additional reading material and websites. I recommend for school and public libraries.
