Freedom Walkers

Two reviews for MG/YA non-fiction today, both short and sweet. Ida Walker of Sweet Tea and Magnolias and Emily M. of EmilyReads took on Russell Freedman’s Freedom Walkers: The Story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

Here’s Ida’s review:

The story is told in a manner that keeps the reader interested. Though factual, it’s not dry. The photographs enhance the text, though the reader could be excused if she thought all of the photos were of Montgomery. Of course reading the caption would clarify that, but many skip over the captions.

And check out Emily, who writes review Haikus. Yes, Haikus:

Freedman scores again:
Strong, elegant intro to
civil rights movement.
