Editorial Reviews

Grade 2-4-Adler relates what is known of Sojourner Truth's life in this chronological narrative. He portrays his subject in a realistic manner, discussing slavery and other issues in an easy-to-read style. The quotes, while undocumented, are simple enough for the target audience and help to place events in context. Excellent-quality watercolor illustrations capture the action and provide effective representations and details of the time period. Another interesting, informative picture-book biography from a prolific author.Marcia S. Rettig, South Buffalo Elementary School, Freeport, PACopyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.
