Hammering for Freedom
Bill’s story is a lot like Harriet Tubman’s, except his plan started before the Civil War began. The illustrations in this picture book show how tiring, hot, and sweaty blacksmith work was, but they also show how kind and loving Bill was to his family. Not only did his family love him, but the entire town loved him. To me, it was a fantastic journey for Bill and his family because he bought their freedom through backbreaking work. This story was exciting to read, and I liked that it showed how much a man loved his family.
