Caldecott Honor book Henry's Freedom Box by Ellen Levine is a true story that was documented in 1879 about a famous runaway slave who grows up during a time when slaves had to constantly fight for justice. The story tells us about the creative way Henry "Box" Brown finds his freedom. Kadir Nelson, the illustrator, does a wonderful job of creating pictures that depict the era and expresses the heartache slaves felt when separated from their families. This book should be in every primary classroom library.
