Reviews - What do customers think about Walking the Road to Freedom (Creative Minds Biography)?
An excellent childrens' book! Nov 14, 2000
My mother bought me these books when I was in the 3rd grade. They got me through many book reports and biography assignments in elementary school. I had never heard of Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth or Benjamin Banneker before. Even now that I am in college I remember things I learned from these books! I have never had a professor mention Sojourner Truth, but I can't listen to a lecture on slavery or African-American women and not think about this book! These books are simple enough for any child to understand, and it might just spark they're interest in history too.
