Beautifully narrated.... Touching and thought provoking story for adults as well as children. American History teachers should incorporate this into their curriculum.

What did you love best about Amos Fortune, Free Man?

My kids and I listened started reading the book for my daughters co-op assignment. We went out of town and forgot the book so we purchased it on audible. It was honestly awesome! We loved listening to it in the car, I was able to pause it and immediately ask questions/discuss and really dig deeper into the meaning of the story- in fact we just purchased the next story she need to read for her co-op as well.
