My Name Is Sally Little Song
This is a well-written, interesting historical fiction with no objectionable material. I really enjoyed this book! I recommend this as a read-aloud for children 9+ or an independent read for children ages 11+, as there are some heavy subjects, such as death, in the book. However, the author does a great job at keeping a positive tone amidst the severe trials the young protagonists face. Most reluctant readers should like this book. The back cover reads: “Sally Harrison and her family are slaves on a plantation in Georgia. But when Master decides to sell Sally and her brother, the family escapes to seek shelter with a tribe of Seminoles who are rumored to adopt runaway slaves.” The only thing I didn’t like was the poor grammar some of the characters used, even though it was the author trying to make the characters authentic.
