Seven Miles to Freedom

By The Reading Tub

A fascinating biography. . . . This is nonfiction for kids at its best. There are myriad historical details, but they are woven into a story that celebrates the achievements of a fascinating man of great accomplishment. . . . I never heard this story when I studied US history. I wish I had. This is the kind of book that will hook kids on history. . . . Seven Miles to Freedom is an excellent, important story. It is a nonfiction picture book that can be shared at home or school, with young children or elementary students. It can serve as a window into biography and history. Last but not least, it is an excellent choice for reluctant or remedial readers.—The Reading Tub
