Review: SISTERS AGAINST SLAVERY by Stephanie Sammartino McPherson and Karen Ritz

Joy’s Book Blog read and reviewed Sisters Against Slavery: A Story About Sarah and Angelina Grimke written by Stephanie Sammartino McPherson and illustrated by Karen Ritz for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

This is a story that I should have heard long ago, say when I was about ten. In fact, I would have adored this story when I was ten right along with one of my favorite books, Harriet Tubman: Conductor on the Underground Railroad by Ann Petry. I’m so pleased to see this book written for that age group so that future generations will learn what I did not.
