Midnight Teacher

By 5 Minutes for Books

[A]s a picture book geared to children in 3rd to 5th grades, this isn’t an exhaustive history recap, but Granderson’s basic story is told with a focus on how the experiences must have affected her physically and emotionally. An afterword is included that shares more specific information about life for enslaved people in the deep South in the 1800s, and over a dozen references are provided, as well.
