I feel like this would really speak to children because trying on shoes is something so normal to children.

I truly enjoyed and that this book was focused on two young girls in the South during the Civil Rights era because not only does it show a civil right movement but also shows feminism as two young girls find a way to obtain what they need. I like the simplistic message of Ella Mae wanting to try on shoes because it takes something realistic and elevates it to a story of racism. This will interest and inspire anybody who reads it.

Rating 4/5

The illustrations are so wonderful and really have a rustic feel to them. Lots of older patterns and textures that you can almost feel.

Such a great book that tells the story for Booker T Washington. I especially love this book because it highlights extremely important details of his life.

Tells a historical story during the time of slavery with an important theme of determination and resilience. Pictures and small paragraphs on each page make it easy for young children to read
