How Many Days to America? Book Review
How Many Days to America is a book about Africans who are going to be taken as slaves so they get on a boat in the middle of the night and escape from the mean men. when the boat's engine gives way, the women knot clothes together to make a sail. When they finally reach land three men jump off of the little boat and swim to shore. There are men on the land but they do not look happy to see the boat. The men bring the dark skinned men back to their little boat with food but say that the boat could not land here. Will they ever reach America? I recommend this book for kids ages seven and up because kids younger than seven may not understand what the story is about.
