" Strong 3 1/2. I do love this author, and I definitely learned some things about Douglass. This would pair well with other books on a variety of topics. I just had a problem with some of the word choices. Assuming the errors are corrected in the final. " said.

" A solid nonfiction read for middle schoolers with great photos and bold quotes that compliment the narrative. " said.

" Excellent overview of the life Frederick Douglass. " said.

" Author excelled at giving detailed descriptions of environment/politics surrounding Frederick throughout the book. However, some spots throughout slowed down dramatically, almost to the point of losing interest. " said.

" I learned so much in this book. I also appreciated how well this complicated man's life was portrayed for this audience. The photographs and information about the time period really added pertinent details. Excellent back matter. " said.

" This book is beautiful- colorful pages, wonderful quotes, interesting pictures. Unfortunately, I felt the text was very disjointed trying to cover an expansive time span. References were made to people and major historical events, but very little in the way of explanations. " said.

" The pictures aided to the very well-researched telling of such a profound man in our Nation's history. My daughter learned quite a bit (9) as she was able to follow with ease the progress of Mr. Douglass's personal growth and gains against the time-period's hardships and war. Wonderful outline and sidenotes for such a wonderful story of courage! " said.

" This book is well-researched but a little too dry. I think the author overcorrected in not conjecturing about Douglass' emotions and sticking solely to facts and correspondance, which leaves the reader cold. You do not get the same sense of what Douglass was going through as you do through other biographical works of civil rights leaders like March. " said.
