A Picture Book of Frederick Douglassby David A. Adler, Samuel Byrd, Charles Turner
A biography of the man who, after escaping slavery, became an orator, writer, and leader in the abolitionist movement in the nineteenth century.
School Library JournalK-Gr 3-David Adler's picture book biography (Holiday House, 1993), illustrated by Samuel Byrd, presents the life of Frederick Douglass and his efforts in the fight to end slavery in America. It describes Douglass's childhood as a slave, his escape from slavery in 1838, and his meeting with President Lincoln. Narrator Charles Turner's voice is deep and expressive, and he subtly breaks his steady narration to provide the voice of Douglass. The audio includes musical accompaniment and sound effects. The sound of a page turning signals a page turn on the first track. The narration also includes the "Important Dates" and "Author's Note" sections from the book. A terrific resource. -April Mazza, Wayland Public Library, MA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
