Books Over TV

I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?

A must read!

Henry's Freedom Box: A True Story from the Underground Railroad - Ellen Levine

"Do you see those leaves blowing in the wind? They are torn from the trees like slave children are torn from their families."

 

 

 Albeit being only 40 pages, I found it to be a heart wrenching, enlightening and inspiring read. I would recommend it to all.

 

 

 *The selling and mistreatment of humans in the most inhumane manner will always be extremely disturbing to me*

 

I can't forget to mention the beautiful drawings by Kadir Nelson. They add such depth and are the visual communicators in the book.
