Product Description

Born to a slave mother and a father he never knew, Frederick Bailey had few prospects as a six-year-old boy in Maryland in the 1820s.  The turn of his fate was the kindness of Missus Auld, the wife of his master.  She took the time and care to teach young Frederick first his letters and then how to read them.  Opening doors he could not have even imagined, words set young Frederick free. 

What life held for Frederick was to change the world. Frederick changed his name to Frederick Douglass and became one of the first leaders of the antislavery movement.  Based on Frederick Douglass's own Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas, this is an inspiring story of the power of the individual.

Written by Lesa Cline-Ransome  Illustrated by James E. Ransoome.
