it was amazing
bookshelves: juvenille-non-fiction

I have tremendous respect for those authors who use their creativity, imagination, and passion to present a "non-fiction" topic to young readers in a way that not educates them about the facts surrounding a particular place or time in history, but are able to do so in a way that shows you the many different facets and perspectives of the people who lived the event. This beautiful picture book tells the story of the great migration north made by thousands of African Americans searching for a better life and freedom from the oppressive Jim Crow laws of the South. Beautifully done!
