A third grader read this book to me last fall. I was so impressed that I have recommended it as a teaching aid for 'Black History Month'. I am also purchasing this book for any children visiting our home to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
