Only Passing Through

Author:Annie F. Rockwell, Gregory Christie(Illustrator)

At the age of nine, Sojourner Truth, known then as Isabella, is purchased at a slave auction by John Dumont, a cruel slave master who often beats her for not understanding English (her first language was Dutch). At 16, Isabella is given to a male slave as a gift, in the hope that she will breed more slaves for her master's profit. Five babies and five years later, Dumont promises to free Isabella; unbeknownst to her, a state law has been decreed, encouraging slave owners to free adult slaves. But when the big day arrives, Dumont claims that Isabella did not work hard enough for him and denies her her freedom. Unwilling to accept this, Isabella runs away and luckily finds a white couple who believe that slavery is wrong. They officially buy her from Dumont and give Isabella her freedom.Living near the Dumont farm, Isabella is able to visit her children, who are still enslaved. But on one visit, she finds that her son Peter is missing; Dumont has sold him to someone in Alabama. Knowing that it is against the law to sell a slave across state lines, Isabella gathers all her courage, gets a lawyer, and decides to fight -- and she wins. From that moment on, she knows that her mission is to spread the word about her time as a slave. She renames herself Sojourner, which means one who travels from place to place.

Only Passing Through is the inspiring story of how a woman, born a slave with no status or dignity, transformed herself into one of the most powerful voices of the abolitionist movement. Anne Rockwell combines her lifelong love of history with her well-known skill as a storyteller to create this simple, affecting portrait of an American icon.

Salt in His Shoes

Author:Roslyn Jordan, Deloris Jordan, Kadir Nelson

The mere mention of the name conjures up visions of basketball played at its absolute best. But as a child, Michael almost gave up on his hoop dreams, all because he feared he'd never grow tall enough to play the game that would one day make him famous. That's when his mother and father stepped in and shared the invaluable lesson of what really goes into the making of a champion -- patience, determination, and hard work.

Deloris Jordan, mother of the basketball phenomenon, teams up with his sister Roslyn to tell this heartwarming and inspirational story that only the members of the Jordan family could tell. It's a tale about faith and hope and how any family working together can help a child make his or her dreams come true.
