I am so very interested in this site because of the FREEDOM UNIT that my students are studying presently. We have visited African-Americans, and slavery, and we are now covering immigrants and studying migrant workers. This is a very kid-friendly story that I have been able to get my students engaged and anxious to learn more. Our next road to Freedom will be the Holocaust!

Thanks for visiting the site, Paula! We’d love to hear about other great books you’ve found to support your FREEDOM UNIT.
