Abstract:

Tells the story of Booker T. Washington's childhood following the end of slavery, his struggle to get an education, and his journey at age sixteen to the Hampton Institute. More than anything, nine-year-old Booker T. Washington longed to go to school. But instead he had to get a job to earn money for his family. Though the Civil War had freed them from slavery, Booker's family had to work hard to survive. Booker didn't forget his dream. He taught himself the alphabet, and he studied at night after work. Finally, when he was sixteen, his mother agreed that he could go to a school for African-American boys. To reach the school, Booker would have to travel 500 miles through unknown country -- alone. Would he make it? Follow along as author Thomas Amper shares the inspiring story of young Booker T. Washington's struggle to get an education. Jeni Reeve's vibrant artwork adds color and life to the tale.
