Storyteller Alice McGill and illustrator Chris K. Soentpiet combine talents to produce this award-winning true story about the grandmother of Benjamin Banneker. This is one of my personal favorites. Immigrating from 17th century England as an indentured servant to America, she marries an African prince, turns a one-room cabin into a thriving 100-acre farm and teaches her grandson to read from her cherished Bible. A remarkable story bringing colonial history alive! Recipient of the Jane Addams Children's Book Award.
