Martha Ann's Quilt for Queen Victoria

Martha Ann’s Quilt for Queen Victoria

Kyra E. Hicks

Price: FREE

Many, many lessons can be taught around this short, but powerful, book. The story of a woman who saved pennies over the span of her lifetime to achieve her dream is relevant for so many of us who have lost sight of the power of patience, persistence and faith in one’s self. I strongly urge all parents and teachers to grab a copy now and share it with young people. It should open up many great conversations!

Martha Ann is twelve years old when Papa finally saves enough money to purchase her freedom from slavery. In 1830, the family leaves east Tennessee to begin a new life in Liberia. On market days, Martha Ann watches the British navy patrolling the Liberian coast to stop slave catchers from kidnapping her family and friends and forcing them back into slavery. Martha Ann decides to thank Queen Victoria in person for sending the navy. But first, she must determine how to make the 3,500-mile voyage to England, find a suitable gift for the Queen, and withstand the ridicule of family and friends who learn of her impossible dream. Martha Ann’s Quilt for Queen Victoria is the true story of Martha Ann Ricks, an ex-slave who spent fifty years saving spare coins to fulfill her dream of meeting the Queen of England.

The Kindle version includes a BONUS TEACHING GUIDE for grades 2 – 6. The Teaching Guide, has themes, key dates, discussion questions and suggested student activities, to assist with creating a lesson plan based on this true story.
