it was amazing

Recommended for: Grades 1-5

The story of Sojourner Truth is both heartbreaking and inspiring. My first grader is just starting to learn about the civil rights movement. He's learned about MLK and Rosa Parks but I wanted to delve more into the topic at home with him. This book should be read aloud as if with the passion of Sojourner Truth herself.

My 6 year old had no trouble understanding the story except for the section referring to the bible. We are not Christian so he hasn't been exposed to the language being used here. My 4 year old didn't seem as interested and probably is too young to understand the concepts presented.
