...this refreshing retrospective of African-American history is engaging and entertaining....Her voice is strong and real. The chosen sites are both significant and fascinating....This charming book would lend itself easily to classroom projects on black history, journal writing, or map study." -School Library Journal"
This book, from one of the founding mothers of contemporary black children's literature, is a lovely introduction to many of our historically relevant sites from the most well known to the more obscure. Colorful illustrations, photographs and journal notations make Sienna's Scrapbook a real treat and an excellent road trip companion for kids." Black Issues Book Review
