Editorial Reviews

Review

"Thoughtful and well-researched . . . a thorough and involving examination of a great man, equally suited to individual immersion and classroom collaboration."  —Booklist


"Classrooms are closed for the summer but teachers take note: this is an excellent educational tool for next year that will fit right into your curriculums and won’t put students to sleep."  —"Letter Blocks" Barnes & Noble parenting and educators blog


"Written for children ages nine and up to easily read and understand, Frederick Douglass is both well-researched and succinct all at once."  —The Pioneer Woman  


"In the hands of educators, this book will be a valuable tool on the life and times of a great orator. However, it is written at a fairly high level, so the title slightly misrepresents the book’s intended audience. For elementary grade children needing sources for a report, this would not be the title of choice; far too much reading is required to draw out the facts relevant for that purpose. Those interested in the subject, however, will appreciate the insightful look at this remarkable individual."  —School Library Journal 


"The 21 activities in the book, such as forming a debate club, taking action in the current world slave market and making a carpet bag, are among the best I’ve seen in any of the Chicago Review Press books I’ve read...Frederick Douglas for Kids: The Life and Times with 21 Activities is an invaluable resource and a spectacular book that should be read by every American child (and parent too)."  —Good Reads with Ronna

Format: Paperback
Frederick Douglass for Kids is a beautifully crafted book, in writing and layout. The scope of information is very impressive and is compiled in a way that is enjoyable for youth and grown-ups. The writing is jam-packed with facts, but written in a semi-narrative style, in some instances describing the emotions Frederick must have felt in the given situations. The pictures in the book are mostly black & white photographs, many taken by the author while researching for the book. There are also many fact boxes in the book that highlight other important people of Frederick Douglass' time that he had interactions with. The activities featured in the book are spread throughout alongside the piece of history they relate to. They are varied enough that there is something interesting to do for everyone. This book is great for a classroom, home-school, or an individual!

Format: Paperback
Once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. (Even the Olympic Games could not distract me!) Douglas' life story, as brilliantly and thoroughly told by author Nancy I. Sanders, is one of great risk and reward, despair and triumph.

Born as Frederick Augustine Washington Baily, the young slave boy from Baltimore, Maryland was taken from his mother, lived with his grandmother and then was sent into slavery at a young age. Throughout the book we learn how he spoke out against the atrocities of slavery and took the most courageous risks through the Underground Railroad to become a free man. We also discover that his name was changed to protect his true identity. His life was one of many hardships and tragedies, yet he rose above it all to become a revered speaker against slavery, an author and a leader in the abolitionist and civil rights movements.

I really enjoyed every aspect of this book. In addition to the astounding life story of Douglas, there many excellent photographs and feature boxes with fascinating facts about other abolitionists and key figures of the era. The 21 activities in the book, such as forming a debate club, taking action in the current world slave market and making a carpet bag, are among the best I've seen in any of the Chicago Review Press books I've read. In the back of the book are resources and a detailed index I found myself using often to cross-reference information.

Now that I've read this book, I am so much more knowledgeable about not only Douglas, but also slavery, the Civil War, civil rights and the abolitionist movement. Frederick Douglas will live on as one of the bravest and brightest Americans in history, and reading this book will inspire children to think about what they should stand up for - or against. Simply put, Frederick Douglas for Kids: The Life and Times with 21 Activities an invaluable resource and a spectacular book that should be read by every American child (and parent too).

This book is the most complete work on Frederick Douglass for children that I have ever seen. The author has taken great pains to include authentic research in a way that children can really digest in a fun way. Mrs. Sanders has a creative style that takes history and makes it come alive. I highly recommend this book. As an elementary teacher looking for ways to take history off the pages and plant it in hearts, I am thoroughly pleased with this purchase.
