More Than Anything Else by Marie Bradby
More Than Anything Else - Marie Bradby,Chris K. Soentpiet,Chris Soentpiet

More Than Anything Else is an inspirational story about Booker T. Washington.  This beautifully illustrated book describes a young boy growing up in the days after emancipation. Despite his aches, pains and hunger, as a result of long laborious days shoveling salt, Booker cannot stop dreaming about learning to read.  His ambition and perserverance teaches a great lesson on not giving up. This is a great story to use with lower elementary classes while studying biographies, character traits, and the importance of literacy.

More Than Anything Else
More Than Anything Else - Marie Bradby,Chris K. Soentpiet,Chris Soentpiet 8/5/13 ** I've tagged this as both historical fiction (primarily) and biography (as it might have been). This moving tale is a narrative of how Booker T. Washington might have learned to read.

I used this book on the second day of school to begin the discussion with my fourth graders of my own love of reading and to help us consider what reading means to each of us. I don't have the book with me at the moment, so I can't quote particular lines, but I do know the message of this boy's passion for learning to read, as well as the idea that reading could set him free brought me shivers as I read.

The White Russian: A Novel - Tom Bradby Wow... What a horrible book. While the overall thought of the plot was a good idea but most of the details of the plot and the characters were an absolute mess and the story really didn't make much sense. The historical nature of the book I'm highly interested in but the idea of the plot even with the author's explanation at the end of the book just didn't fit. Also, Bradby's ending and who was the actual murder was just bad and how he got there was just a hot mess.
