Blanks's dense, deep oil paintings subtly juxtapose the lush green grass around the schoolhouse and in the leaves of Henry's tree against the hard, red clay around the Grismore plantation. This inspiring collaboration makes a solid contribution to most collections. -- Children's Reviewer "Publishers Weekly"
The focus on one brave child will bring listeners close to the cruel historical facts and the message about the power of literacy. -- Children's Reviewer "Booklist"
From the Back Cover
One day Henry finishes his chores quickly, then runs to the schoolhouse. He hides in a sycamore tree just as the teacher begins reading a story. His heart pounds as he listens with astonishment, and right then he makes up his mind to learn to read. Henry's fierce determination and bravery in the face of serious consequences lead him to a special friendship, and a journey of discovery that changes his life forever.
Set in the pre-Civil War South, Up the Learning Tree is a story of hope and humanity during difficult times, and a poignant reminder that the freedom to learn should never be taken for granted.
