This book is a very good display for young children on slavery and I would use in my classroom definitely!
“Some slaves were freed by their owners. Henry‘s heart beat fast. Maybe the master would free him.”
This book is a great take on slavery as it is kid friendly and has a great approach to introducing slavery: the idea that Henry ships himself off to freedom can be a less brutal approach on the reality of how things were for slaves. The book still provides a lot of important aspects/facts for children to know about.
