Show a way to freedom
This book was a Newbery Honor Book in 2006. It is appropriate for children ages 8-12. It is a historical fiction book which tells of slavery and how a quilt helps deliver some slaves to safety and freedom. It takes us through several generations to show how the quilt was significant in each period of time. I feel this book is very important for older children to read. I feel that the story and illustrations will help them to see how far our country has come. Freedom is very important and all people should be able to experience true freedom. This book was written by Jacqueline Woodson and illustrated by Hudson Talbott. Ms. Woodson has written many books such as Locomotion and Other Side. Woodson, Jacqueline. Show Way. New York: G.P. Putnam¿s Sons, 2005.

Beautiful, emotional book
This book, through both its original poetic lyrics and thought provoking illustrations, stirs the emotions of higher level thinkers, and is a must read for all elementary classrooms. Beautiful portrayal of the complexities of civil rights, seperation, and slavery, leaving the reader with many questions and a desire to know more.Was this review helpful?
