I would consider using this book in my classroom because of the history of the book and how easily it was to understand the point of the story but it was put together in an interesting way, using repetition.

Show Way written by Jacqueline Woodson. Tells the story of the authors long line of family history, dating back to her great great grandmother, Sophie, and how much things have evolved and changed since her time. The story is accurate considering it came from the author and the storyline is very intriguing.

I would read this book in my classroom for sure. It‘s important for students to see how different some people lived throughout history. This book also shows the struggles African American experienced, but more personalized.

This book was incredible. It follows the family line of Jacqueline Woodson all the way from Her grand grandmothers, great grandmother. It shows the history African American had to experience as well as making it personal to just this family. There is a form of repetition with each child saying “when she turned seven” marking the age some of the children got sold and when some children had to walk in protests.

This historical fiction book is meant bring it's own interesting plot to a prominent time in history. The history is accurately displayed and even tiny minor details are shown to be well researched. I find this to be respectable in the way it was made and I enjoyed seeing the visible viewpoints and values of back then!

This book is important for learning about the lives touched by enslavement. Not only will it be exciting and intriguing to the reader, but they will be moved by the touching story. They will see the conflicts, joys, and disparities they had to go through before us. Being exposed to something of the past like this allows these children to have a larger takeaway and appreciate the ones before us working to make a change!

This was a multi-generational story of women from the days of slavery in the US through today. Story telling was a verbal art in the beginning, and although this was a storybook I felt that aura in this telling. Fantastic illustrations as well!
