Frederick Douglass: The Lion Who Wrote History
"Frederick Douglass: The Lion Who Wrote History, by the late great award-winning children's book author Walter Dean Myers and illustrated by Coretta Scott King (Illustrator) Book Award winner Floyd Cooper, is a moving, informative picture book biography of an exceptional American and one of the towering figures of abolitionism. It shows Douglass' path from childhood slavery in the South, where he taught himself to read, to escaping to the North, becoming a free man, a great orator and abolition advocate, and eventually a member of the government. It's an excellent introduction for younger readers to the complicated history of slavery, emancipation, and the Civil War. ”
