Book Review: The Golden Pathway by Donna M. McDine

Book Review: The Golden Pathway by Donna M. McDine, illustrated by K.C. Snider 

Raised in a hostile environment where abuse occurs daily, David attempts to break the mold and befriends the slave, Jenkins, owned by his Pa. Fighting against extraordinary times and beliefs, David leads Jenkins to freedom with no regard for his own safety and possible consequences dealt out by hisPa.

My Review: What a powerful story of good will by Award winning children’s author, Donna McDine. She takes you back in time showing us that slavery did exist and how the Underground Railroad helped slaves escape to the north where they gained their freedom.

The message we should take from this story is that there are good and faithful people willing to make a wrong right by satisfying anything to help others. What a wonderful illustration by K.C. Snider bringing the story to life. I highly recommend the Golden Pathway to History teachers, parents, and children.

Age: 9 – 12
