" Good, readable biography of Phyllis Wheatley. slightly dry but the kids were into it. We learned quite a bit about her. It would have been nice to have had more examples of her poetry included. " said.

" Intelligent introduction to slavery for young children as well as being a good introduction to Phyllis Wheatley's life and poetry w/bright, clear, historically accurate illustrations. " said.

" This is a biography about the slave poet Phillis Wheatley and her journey to success. Takes place during the Revolutionary War, would be a great introduction to poetry unit. " said.

" Great imagery. Accessible for 4th grade but the underlying themes and stylistic choices are probably better approached in middle school. " said.

" Inspirational story of a slave girl allowed to be educated " said.

" Excellent story of a brilliant poet. She was the first African-American woman to have a book published. The illustrations were also very good. " said.

" Celebrate Poetry month with this well written and illustrated biography of an African woman who became a published poet during the early days of the American Revolution. This books is a great steeping off point for students learning about American slavery, it's impact on Africans. This book is available or check out at the Gadsden County Public Library. " said.

" What an incredible story! I've heard the name Phillis Wheatley, but I never knew her story. This book gives a very simplified look into the time and life of Phillis Wheately. I really enjoyed this book, as I do with most historical fiction books. I'm not sure how much of this is true when it comes to the story of Phillis' mother, but I know her being such a successful poet is in fact true and once again is such an incredible story! " said.
