In my opinion this was a very boring and would be a difficult book to read for students. This book described the life and achievements of Frederick Douglass. This book was written in a way that would not be very engaging to students. The author included chapter titles and then a lot of information for each chapter. This book was also not written in a way that would be engaging to students. The illustrations in this book are drawn and black and white and are not very appealing to look at. This would not be a good book for students to read if they had trouble paying attention to text. The main idea or message of this book was to explain to readers about all of the achievements that Frederick Douglass completed throughout his lifetime. I believe the author could have written in a more appealing and engaging way for readers. This biography would not be very appropriate to the targeted audience because they would find this boring and uninteresting.
