A lovely biography of one of the world’s oldest students: Mary Walker. Mary was born into slavery in 1848, lived to be freed, outlived 2 husbands and all of her children. At age 114 she decided that she had waited her entire life to learn how to read a Bible she had received shortly after being freed from slavery. Learn she did, and she lived to the age of 121. A wonderful message in the story, and Oge Mora’s collage style illustrations bring this story to life.
