Book Sharing Monday

Show Way
by Jacqueline Woodson
Illustrated by Hudson Talbott

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Not so much because of the story itself, although it is well written and engaging,  but because the author has shared her own story.  She has been able to trace her ancestors back six (6) generations! For those of us who are here in America as a result of slavery, tracing our heritage is a challenge—to put it lightly.

This story shows the importance of those beautiful quilts that were made as a "Show Way" to those who would try to escape to freedom (some made it, some didn't).

I highly recommend this book and plan to add it to our personal library.

Happy Reading!
