" I just can't help but wonder what she would have to say to all these people today! An amazing strong woman who didn't whine about life. " said.

" Great book to read during Black History Month or in History! This book takes you through Sorjourner's life. " said.

" This would be a good book for a read aloud for an elementary class. The pictures are great and the story of her life is portrayed well. " said.

" My 6yr old nephew picked this out for me at the library! Glad he did, because unfortunately, it's the most I've ever learned about her. She needs more mentions in our school books, history lessons & society, in general. " said.

" David Alder always does a wonderful job with his mini-biography picture books for young readers. In this book Alder focuses on the remarkable life of Sojourner Truth, the horrible labors she endured as a slave and her endless spirit for helping others. A great addition to any elementary library or classroom. " said.

" This book, part of David A. Adler's 'Picture Book Biography' series, is well-organized and full of facts concerning the life of one of American history's most important female orators & freedom fighters. A woman who met with two different presidents (Lincoln & Grant) as an elderly black woman born into slavery, is a must read for anyone who wishes to be informed of the diversity of the American experience. " said.

"This is a biography based on Sojourner Truth. It begins with a brief background on Sojourner Truth, how she was a slave, how her name was Isabella until after she was free, and how she was beaten at nine by her owners. One day after finishing her work she ran away. She ran because a nine year promise of freedom had been broken.

This biography could be used as an introductory source to slavery, court cases in which African-Americans win lawsuits against white men, the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln, President Ulysses S. Grant, and remarkable women. It could also teach a great lesson about forgiveness as Sojourner Truth claims that her old master turned into a brother.

It could also be read alongside A Picture Book of Harriet Beecher Stowe, A Picture Book of Frederick Douglass, Underground: Finding the Light to Freedom, or a book about Rosa Parks. Sojourner Truth refused to give up her seat and was eager to fight for her rights years before Rosa Parks.
" said.

" A good overview of the life of Sojourner Truth. " said.
