Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
With its simple text and unique time line format, young readers can now learn about Booker T. Washington. His story begins in 1856 and ends in 1915. What happens in between will affect the entire nation. As a young child slave, Booker is determined to become more then just a free man. He wants to be an educated free man. He begins by learning his letters then he heads to the Hampton School for African Americans as a free man. He soaks up all the knowledge he can and becomes a teacher. He opens up his own school. He teaches students the basics and even a trade. He speaks out and tells the masses that they too can learn. He even writes a book about this same subject. Due to all of Booker's efforts, many African Americans became educated and helped contribute to our nation. Lola Schaefer captures the time period of Booker's life with photographs. The aids of the table of content, glossary, and index make this reference book an incredible find for any 1st or 2nd grader. Don't forget to check out the extra books and websites that she suggests. 2003, Capstone Press, Ages 7 to 9.
