    1. In Tonya Bolden's remarkable book, Tell All the Children Our Story it is as if you are looking through a scrapbook of pictures and text all portraying the lives of African Americans in the early America.

    5. The history of African American children and young adults in America from the first indentured servants and the horrific Middle Passage to modern teens with their opportunities and diversities. The best part of the book is the first person accounts from letters, diaries and interviews highlighted throughout the book. Positive. Covers same territory as Lester’s To Be a Slave. The difference is that this book is mostly historical narrative.

    7. This book has great information about many different African Americans. It is a little lengthy and is set up like a short picture book. There are pictures and facts in the book that many students should know. This book would be helpful to students in middle school doing a report on African Americans.
