" 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.

This book is filled with the journey and achievements made by Phyllis who was a slave and also the first published negro women writer. She went through a lot to prove herself and she was able to be free before her masters died. She still stayed in the house because she was never treated as a slave with them but as a part of the family because to them she was. I like this book because it showed that eventhough she was a slave she still lived a good and fulfilling life and was able to be free by the ripe age of 18.

" 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.

" 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.

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.
