    This one-note book is comfortable with itself.

    Hudson Talbott's illustrations omit anything real about slavery or dignity. The book begins oddly by showing children in chains but what isn't shown is who's doing the chaining. Also, why is the principle character's mother and father so passive in her kidnapping? This book can't seriously be for 5 and up. Or even 8 and up. It clearly will lead to seperation anxiety. This is only the first two pages of this book, as it goes on, more cliches ensue, climaxing with an egotistical ending -- slavery happened to a large group of people, what about everyone else? Very disappointingly written and illustrated but I do think the right book will come to give children some sense of their history, culture, and self worth.
