A noteworthy review of Journey to Freedom from Library Media Connection on May 1, 2010

This series includes titles covering historical events as well as the life stories of individuals who played many roles in African-American history. Each title includes text and illustrations, with excellent supplementary materials such as a timeline, glossary, and further reference materials designed to assist the reader in understanding the content and to extend their knowledge of the subject matter. Illustrations include replicas of primary source documents as well as photos, drawings, and maps. Sidebars throughout the volumes provide further explanation of concepts included in the text. These titles would complement any collection, providing quality content for the elementary level and well-written hi-lo (high interest, low reading level) historical materials at the secondary level.
