Children s books are not well served by omitting or straight up changing history There s a few inaccuracies that I m assuming are intentional There s little discussion of how local law enforcement stalked the couple and little discussion of their stays in jail which they endured No mention of the drives Richard made in order to have a job and live somewhere where his marriage would be legal The book makes a cute note of how after the couple was married they couldn t wait to start a family when in reality Mildred s pregnancy and Richard s brief abandonment were the reason why they wanted to get married in the first place Mildred is misidentified as part Cherokee when she identified as Rappahannock She also did not identify as black for information on that complicated issue see Debbie Reese s post This coupled with the other issues makes me think that the book was not well researched or that research was not well represented in the final product History is complicated and children deserve to hear about the complicated parts
