    Written by Chyna, age 11The book Nightjohn by Gary Paulsen is about a girl named Sarny who is enslaved on a plantation. She is raised by Delie (Mammy). A man named NightJohn who is also enslaved on the same plantation started to teach Sarny how to read and write. This was necessary to him because he wanted enslaved people to be able to write about their slave experience. Even though educated slaves aren’t supposed to teach others, NightJohn took that risk and taught her secretly. I gave this book five stars because this book teaches you about slavery and about what enslaved people had to experience and go through. Also, I felt intrigued reading this book because it taught me about my ancestors in an entertaining way. It was entertaining because Gary Paulsen created up fictional characters to excite children or other readers through the characters’ charismatic personalities. 5th graders or ages 10 and up should read this book because they are able to handle the shocking and disturbing happenings properly. Also, students this age are able to hear and visualize challenging things. Younger children would not be able to handle the disturbing or shocking events.

    Every person, 10 years and older, should read this book. It helps you understand how really rough slavery in the USA really was. And although it's a novel, it's based on a real incident. Please read this one, and the novel Sarny, also by the same author. The book, Sarny, is a sequel to Nightjohn.

    One of my favorite ways to teach history is through making connections between historic fictions and non-fiction books. Gary Paulsen has done an perfect job with drawing the reader in and holding their attention. This is one of the most moving books for this time in history. The children obtain totally involved emotionally as I read it aloud. Amazing class discussion pursue with lots of critical thinking. This is a must have book for a classroom library but of course beautiful much all of Gary Paulsen books are.

    Nice to be able to obtain actual books on CD for a decent price. We listen to this in my 7th grade ELA class. Great, strong (and short) book, and unbelievable narrator

    This story was assigned to me in a college class. It's content is no holds barred, graphic, and intense. I would not suggest kids under 12 reading, and some would probably go with a higher age than that. The endearing story of a small girl wanting to learn to read, as taught by a heroic slave is the items amazing stories are created of. Is this a amazing book? Yes, no doubt. But, again, I caution the age it is ready for-do not be fooled by the little book with few pages. It says lots in few words.

    This book was surprisingly short, finished it in one day, unusual of me, but the story I'll never forget, bringing back the title, it is verrrrry terrifying and very dark. Highly recommended PG13 though I'm 12 and reading this as a summer book, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK

    My kids are in their 30/s now and I discovered the film on VHS when my kids were preteens. This was my youngest son favorite film as a kid and he still love it to this day. And he now shares this film with his 6 year old son instilling in him the love for reading. Now, when i explore the book, I just had to obtain it, read it in one day and it was exact onpoint like the movie. Every household should have the film or the book or both as I do. It truly points out the importance of a MUSt for reading and having an education.
