    Not bad for a starting point It would be a good way to get into a discussion of the Underground Railroad, slavery, race and other somewhat tricky concepts with a younger child Much older than 10, I think they would be bored by this though, as it is very simple to read A good series as well for reluctant readers, for the simplicity and shortness.

    This book was not very detailed I would ve thought that Corey would ve had a lotto say I didn t catch too much suspense about what the whole journey he just took must ve entailed This is definitelyfor younger children An even younger audience than the dear America series One thing I did learn, from this book and really clarified in the life in America section was how even in free states blacks could be taken back into slavery And I remember that in the American girl addy series This book was not very detailed I would ve thought that Corey would ve had a lotto say I didn t catch too much suspense about what the whole journey he just took must ve entailed This is definitelyfor younger children An even younger audience than the dear America series One thing I did learn, from this book and really clarified in the life in America section was how even in free states blacks could be taken back into slavery And I remember that in the American girl addy series, their family goes to Philadelphia Which seemed to have been a pretty famous place for Slaves to capture their freedom I m curious how come such determined slave owners didn t gather in the famous locations like that to try to take back their slaves And how the families in these famous American locations where slaves tried to start over a new life, could ever live without fear of their old masters sending someone to these well known locations to take them back It s interesting that anyone stayed in the US at all and that they all didn t go to Canada like Corey s family did
