Description:

Henry Brown wasn't sure how old he was. Henry was a slave. And slaves weren't allowed to know their birthdays.

Henry dreams of a world where his life belongs to him. But when his family is sold, he risks everything for what he knows is right. With the strength and conviction of the best kind of hero, Henry makes a harrowing journey in a wooden crate -- and mails himself to freedom!

In this powerful true story, Ellen Levine weaves the extraordinary events of Henry "Box" Brown's life with poignancy and grace. Kadir Nelson's luminous paintings shine their light into the soul of each character. Together, they make this inspiring account unforgettable.

Ages: 4 - 8
