I, Juan de Pareja

by Elizabeth Borton de Trevino is a good book about a slave in Europe, who works for an painter, Diego Velazquez. The story is told through Juan's eyes. From when he was a boy to when he was a man, this is a GREAT book, both to read aloud, and to read to yourself.

As I said in a previous post about this book, I would recommend I, Juan de Pareja for grades 4 and up.
