The Delany Sisters Reach High

Some brief overview of book

A new children's biography of the Delany sisters, written by award-winning journalist Amy Hill Hearth and illustrated by award-winning artist Tim Ladwig The Delany sisters took the world by storm with their best-selling biography, Having Our Say, by Amy Hill Hearth. Now their story takes a new form-a biography written especially for children ages 8-12. Reach High introduces children to the childhood of two very special African American sisters.

Sadie was the first African American high school teacher in New York City, and Bessie was only the second African American woman licensed to practice dentistry in the state. Reach High introduces children to the childhoods of these two extraordinary women who, in spite of the tremendous obstacles they faced, followed the advice of their father, strove tirelessly, and realized their ultimate goals. Sadie and Bessie both lived to be over 100 years old and have become inspirations to all who read their story.
