A cute informative book that encourages kids to think about animals, humans, and the clothing they do or don’t wear!
The first book I read about Henry “Box” Brown is a wonderfully written lyrical account of a slave determined to be free. The illustrations are great. I enjoyed reading an excerpt from an actual letter written in the mid-1800’s recalling some of the incidents of this book.
Maybe it was because I just read this right after Freedom Song but I didn’t like this as much. It was interesting what parts of Henry’s life were mentioned in both books, which weren’t, and what were focused on or weren’t. Customers have actually recommended this to me. Usually, I’m a fan of Kadir Nelson’s illustrations but not this time.
This was one of those books that made me want to learn more about the subject or person discussed. Jennifer Bearne told the life of Jacques Cousteau in way that was enough but also makes you want more. The illustrations and the “surprise” in the middle of the book just added to the richness of this book!
