This is a very wonderful book. I would read this to my own children. I love how Clara is smart enough to be able to use cloth to make a map quilt to help her find her mom and find freedom. I also love the pictures in this book. It is a very sweet book.

This is a book about slavery, but it is told from the point of view of a young slave named Clara. She craftily gets pieces of cloth to create a map to freedom. My third graders loved the book and the illustrations.

A wonderful companion to UNDER THE QUILT OF NIGHT by the same author and illustrator.
