Reviews for Elijah of Buxton (2 vol.)
RatingComments
5We used this book for our Mother/Daughter book club made up of girls ranging in age from 10 to 13. It was an excellent text for Black History Month. The book centers around the first free child born in Buxton, named Elijah. He is a fictional character, but the setting, Buxton, is an actual town that was settled for the sole purpose of providing a safe haven for ex-slaves. In this town they could own property and participate in community government. Although there are some serious themes regarding slavery, the author handles them in a fashion appropriate for children. He also interjects humor into the story as well as page turning adventure. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to give their child a better understanding of slavery.
