    1 thought on “Priscilla and the Hollyhocks”

    1. We get a different sense of slavery in this book as we learn a bit about how to survive in the Master's household as a young girl slave, how even Native Americans owned slaves, and how our country has several stories about treating her people unjustly to be told (e.g the Cherokee Trail of Tears). The overlapping histories gave more authenticity to the story. I loved the faces in the illustrations! They seemed to reach out and grab me with their sincerity. But, the part that makes it a 4-star is [...]

    2. My Review: This is a well written story based on facts. Anne Broyles takes us on a journey into Priscilla's childhood as she is sold from one family to another until she found Massa Silkwood who set her free and adopted her into his family of fifteen. Priscilla was not only saved by Mr. Silkwood but also by hollyhocks. Old Sylvia told her how her mother will make hollyhock dolls and set it to sail on the cow pond. When she watches her flower dolls float on the cow pond she felt her mother’s sm [...]

    3. Priscilla is a slave on a Georgia plantation when her mother is sold away; leaving only the hollyhocks that she has grown to comfort her daughter. Basil Silkwood visits the plantation giving Priscilla a sense of hope before her master dies and sells her to a Cherokee family. Soon she has to walk the Trail of Tears with the family and happens to meet Mr. Silkwood, who buys her freedom from the Cherokee family. He frees her and she lives in his home with his wife and other adoptive children. She g [...]

    4. I didn't like the language: graphic text for K-3:("I 'membered the sound of other slaves' screams as Master beat them. My poundin' heart echoed the blows Master struck against black bodies", unnatural language: "Home we went to a family who claimed me slave no longer", distracting vernacular. Is this why I didn't feel empathy for the character?Also, the amazing and true coincidence of Priscilla's second meeting with Mr. Silkwood seems beyond belief, since it looks like they recognized each other [...]

    5. This story talks about slavery from a slaves point of view. It is written very well. It is about a little girl who is sold and is no longer with her mom and loves Hollyhocks as it reminds her of her mom. This is a true story. The pictures are very colorful. The text are well written and make it sound like you are in the time period. At the end of the story their is an author note that gives some insight in the background about the story. It also gives directions on how to make a Hollyhock doll. [...]

    6. Priscilla and her mother are separated during the mid-1830s due to slavery. Priscilla is sold to a Cherokee family and forced to march along the Trail of Tears when she crosses the opportunity to gain her freedom. This story gives a glimpse of slavery of Native American people during the time period of westward expansion. I would recommend reading this book to students when learning about westward expansion and the treatment of Native Americans. This book sends a positive message of hope and hav [...]

    7. Priscilla and the Hollyhocks by Anne Broyles, illustrated by Anna Alter – 3rd grade and up – beautiful glimpse of life of a girl who grew up as a slave, was traded to another slave owner who happened to be Cherokee, walked in 1838 on the “Trail of Tears” with her owners, and then was eventually bought by someone who gave her freedom from slavery. Touching and inspiring. Throughout her journey she carried hollyhock seeds which helped her find “home” where ever she was…

    8. Creamy, rounded illustrations and smooth southern narration tell the heartbreaking yet hopeful, true tale of a young girl who survived isolation, slavery and exile with the help of her wits, her mother’s memory and the kindness of a stranger.You can listen in on our chat about this book on ourJust One More Book! Children's Book Podcast.

    9. I didn't know whether to shelve this one as a fiction or nonfiction. It's a children's story of a true character beginning in the 1850s. Her story is told from childhood when, as a child, she is separated from her mother until she is a free woman. The illustrations are fantastic with muted colors and faces that makes one feel a sense of feeling what the characters feel.

    10. This is a story that should be told, about a young girl's life in slavery and the kindness of a man who eventually gives her freedom and raises her as his own. It's not the most beautifully told tale, but one worth reading. It also touches on the historic truths of Native American slave holders and the experience of the Trail of Tears.

    11. This book is based on a true story. This picture book is a great way to introduce some of the harsh elements of Civil rights. There is a happy ending tot he story that hopefully students would focus on more than the young girl being a slave.

    12. This story was great and we loved reading it for our Civil War unit. I wish I could find a source for seed from Priscilla's Hollyhocks! The pictutes were only ok, but otherwise this was a great book.

    13. This was another book that was included in my text set. It is a true story about a little girl and her life in slavery and the different families that she works for until one family eventually adopts her as their own.

    14. I was surprised to find out it was about a girl who really lived. It had a sad feeling to the story. However, the girl always had hope for something. I liked the book. It is a great way to teach children about the days when Americans had slaves.

    15. Priscilla was born a slave girl. Her true life story as a slave separated from her mother is chronicled in this children's story book. She worked hard, but she found time to sit and play among the holly hocks and dream of freedom.

    16. An interesting slice of history, portraying the difficult reality of slavery,"relocation" of Native Americans, and the surprising intersection of the two. Happily, there is a happy ending for the protaganist, and a beautiful visual tie to hollyhocks. Anna Alters paintings are lovely.

    17. I learned a few things about this time period from this short picture book. Not a typical tale of slavery.

    18. I highly recommend this children's tale of a young enslaved African American girl who is sold to the Cherokee. I heard about the book and visited the town where she was finally freed.
