"Sadie's Hero is a nice story about Sadie. She's a young student who in completing a school assignment, discovers a real life hero, one that is closer than she might have thought. This primary level chapter book includes discussion questions and resource information for Black History Month that will spark student's curiosity and encourage research about historical figures such as Zora Neale Hurston, Sojourner Truth, Jackie Robinson, Harriet Tubman, Arthur Ashe, and Frederick Douglass."

"Your book is EXCELLENT!!!
I love that you give the children (readers) a chance to realize that heroes aren't only those who are famous, but also those who they may see, talk to, or know on a daily basis. Your open-ended questions at the end will make the children think, and there were three people with whom I was unfamiliar in the "Notable African-Americans" section.
Keep up the great work, Sharon, and let God continue to use you as He sees fit!
