This book had fantastic illustrations. They helped make the information offered more interesting. The content was excellent by an accomplished author. This author also did some of the "Dear America" series. She researches her history topics well. This book would be appealing to little girls and could inspire them to dream big and work to make their ideas into a reality regarding business. Well done.

The pictures are beautiful. The story thoughtfully written. More importantly, the book's message of hope, hard work, and loyalty comes through loud and clear. As a business woman, Sarah (Madame CC) was not only supportive to her sisters "of color" she was loyal to the community in which she lived. We all have "brothers and sisters" we can reach out to and help. It's a message needed in today's world.

I really enjoyed sharing this book with my class. I am a primary teacher and I thought that the storyline and facts given were appropriate to share with young children. She is a person in african american history who all should admire for her courage and tenacity.

This is part of the Candlewick Biographies series, which are 30 -45 page, illustrated biographies of interesting Americans, for younger readers. This one seems best as a read aloud -- most notably because of the author's decision (discussed in an Author's Note at the beginning,) to use "colored" in keeping with the time that Sarah Breedlove Walker lived. It works beautifully, IMHO, but it does jar the eyes. It helped to know the thought involved in deciding to use it. I think it a bit unlikely that a 3rd or 4th grader (to me, the most likely audience for this book) would even know about Madam Walker, so this book seems a natural fit to give as a gift or have in a classroom.

Kathryn Lasky tells Sarah's story in a clear and captivating manner. Orphaned at 7, married by 14, widowed by 20, Sarah Walker a black woman with an entrepreneurial gift, hauled herself up pretty much by her own bootstraps and became Madam C.J. Walker, a respected business owner and philanthropist. I was surprised to learn she died at age 51, as her influence seemed that of a woman with more years upon the planet. The soft-edged and often-somber illustrations by Nneka Bennett are not what I expected in a children's book, but they work well with the story.

I see this as a book a parent, grandparent or teacher could share with a child. Lasky and Bennett tell a story of hard work and success and "paying it forward" to help out others.

Candlewick Press has recently reissued in paperback Kathryn Lasky's biography of Sarah Breedlove Walker, originally published in 2000. In a brief 48 pages, Lasky chronicles the life of this remarkable woman, born into poverty to former slaves, who became a highly successful entrepreneur and philanthropist. Orphaned at the age of seven, Sarah had a difficult childhood, and married at the age of 14 to escape living with her sister and her cruel husband. She eventually moved to St. Louis where she worked as a laundress and diligently saved to be able to give her daughter the education she never had.

Because of poor nutrition, Sarah's hair began to fall out, and she began to work on a formula that would produce healthy hair for African-American women. After testing her products on herself, she began selling door-to-door, and eventually expanded her products into the Madam C. J. Walker Manufacturing Company, a business empire which made her the wealthiest black woman in America.

In a brief, easy to read narrative, Lasky hits on the highlights of Walker's life, emphasizing how remarkable her success was in an era when she had two strikes against her--being female and being black. My favorite scene in the book involves Waker attending a conference of African-American business leaders, all of whom (of course!) were men. Lasky describes how Walker tried unsuccessfully to get the attention of Booker T. Washington, so that she could speak. She finally sprang to her feet, relating how she came from the cotton fields of the South, promoting herself into the business of manufacturing hair goods. "'My object in life is not simply to make money for myself, but to use part of what I make in trying to help others,' continued Madam Walker...With these words, Madam Walker proved herself more than equal to any man in that room."

An epilogue describes Walker's commitment to philanthropy and to civil rights; her dying words were "I want to live to help my race." Back matter also includes an illustrator's note an index, and selected sources.

Abundantly illustrated with beautiful full color watercolor paintings by Nneka Bennett, Lasky's book is an inspirational tale that could be read aloud or read independently by children in elementary school.
