    I loved this book!

    How would you feel if you got treated with disrespect because of your skin color? Well the children in the book were back in the 1940s to the 1960s. This non-fiction book tells about real children¿s lives when the civil rights movement was going on. Ellen Levine did a wonderful job telling these stories. This book has stories in it about Bloody Sunday, the Montgomery Bus Boycott, the beginning of the Movement, The Selma to Montgomery march, Segregation and Integration in schools, Sit-ins, freedom rides, the Children¿s Crusade, the Little Rock Nine, and the Selma Movement. It also has stories about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I think someone who likes to hear about the Civil Rights Movement from a teenager or child¿s point of view would be interested in this book. The setting of this book is in the south, like Montgomery and Selma, Alabama. The weakest points of this book were when the author interviewed friends of Civil Rights workers and they told about the same things as the Civil Rights workers. I think the strongest points of this book were when Ellen Levine talked about the actions people took after Bloody Sunday. I¿ve never read a book like this before but I¿m glad I did.

    Freedoms Children is an AWESOME story

    I loved the book Freedoms Children. Anyone who is interest in the blacks rights during the time of the Civil war should read this book. You learn so much more and so many of these storys can relate to you. Just think about it it is amazing!

    An Amazing Novel by an Amazing Woman

    Levine is a genius! In person, she is even more touching than her novel. A must read for any concerned human.

    An Excellent Book On The Stuggles Of The South

    Freedom's Children really touched me and opened my eyes to the plight of the black race in the south in the 50's and before. I felt rage and disgust in the poor dilluted souls who lowered themselves to their hatred and pride in the ability of others to overcome that hatred and take what is the most cherished of all rights: the right to be a human being.
