I love to read historical books, both fiction and non fiction. This one is a delightful work of non-fiction designed for the elementary reader, but greatly appreciated by this adult. 414 more words

This kid’s fiction won the Coretta Scott King Award and the Scott O’Dell Award for historical fiction, as well as qualifying as a Newbery Honor book and a National Book Award finalist. 504 more words
