Riding Freedom by Pam Munoz Ryan – Book Review

This book is definitely one of my favorites, thirteen years hasn't changed that. I knew that I was going to like reading it just as much this time around as I did the first time because it is one of those books that I think about from time to time. Although it targets children as its main audience I think both children and adults can relate to Charlotte, and I also think both groups can stand to learn a thing or two from this book. Apart from generally being good storytelling, the book also teaches an important lesson about a significant figure in American history.
