This Book was absolutely breathtaking! The illustrator drew with his heart what compassion and rich colors and The author touched my heart. It made me realize what a determined person would do for something they believed in despite the great sacrifice! Faith and Determination definately equal a miracle. As an educator this book deserves an A plus, It will definately be on my gift list and it should be in every school. We should teach children that a sacrifice requires determination and many sacrifices were made, during slavery. Thank God for Freedom and may we never take that for granted. LOVE THIS BOOK IT IS MARVELOUS, WONDERFUL AND SO VERY TOUCHING, AND ENCOURAGING AND UPLIFTING!!!!
