A great story and one that continues to establish Ms. Taylor as an accurate historian and storyteller for this era. Her characters are well-developed, sometimes complex, but all with qualities that everyone can identify with. I highly recommend her books, especially for children or adults who are not familiar with this era in African-American history.

I had been looking for this book for many many years. Now I finally found it! I read this story when I was a child and it touched my heart deeply. Based on a true story, a must read! This is a series. Thank you to the sender for sending the book in a timely manner!
The Well is a book that works into lesson plans for Black History month very easily.
The author of the book helps elementary age students understand the racial tension that reached its tenacles far beyond the Civil War and made the Civil Rights Movement in our nation a necessity.
I would encourage every teacher to have a classroom set of this book to use to help explain that hatred and racism can be overcome. It may take years, but each small victory is simply a rung in the ladder to success.
