I highly recommend this wonderful book.
Civil War was ALREADY in place before Lincoln decided to cripple the South financially by abolishing slavery. Lincoln said he would want to keep slaves and Black were Inferior to Whites etc. This author is uneducated on slavery. The further away you get from those who lived during that time the more watered down it will be. I understand it's for Children but even what she covered could have been the truth and accurate.
If you are trying to teach your children the truth to have a better understanding from someone else's perspective, this book will hurt your child more than help them and cause more discourse due to ignorance.
I thought this book was age appropriate, used great imagery and was clear, without being rude (in regards to Europeans) or causing one to form negative perceptions about them or Africans. It prompted a lot of thought-provoking questions from him which gave us many teachable moments and allowed us to have a dialogue that may not have been had without this book. I definitely recommend it for all parents and races and look forward to ordering more books from this publisher.
