Recipient of a Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor Award A Kirkus Reviews Best Picture Book of 2019 A young slave girl witnesses the heartbreak and hopefulness of her family and their plantation community when her brother escapes for freedom in this brilliantly conceived picture book by Coretta Scott King Award winner James E. Ransome. Every single morning, the overseer of the plantation rings the bell. Daddy gathers wood. Mama cooks. Ben and the other slaves go out to work. Each day is the same. Full of grueling work and sweltering heat. Every day, except one, when the bell rings and Ben is nowhere to be found. Because Ben ran. Yet, despite their fear and sadness, his family remains hopeful that maybe, just maybe, he made it North. That he is free. An ode to hope and a powerful tribute to the courage of those who ran for freedom, The Bell Rang is a stunning reminder that our past can never be forgotten.… (mer)

The Bell Rang by James E. Ransome tells the story of families during slavery. Ransome is able to tell the story of a young boy, Ben, who seeks freedom at a level of appropriateness for young readers. The pages of the book have seldom text, but the words on each page are purposely repetitive and simple to show a family who was enslaved daily routine. The gorgeous illustrations that appear to be watercolor and ink draw the readers in making them feel the emotions of joy, despair, and grief that are felt throughout the young boy’s life. Readers follow Ben’s journey through adulthood and ultimately to freedom. Ransome leaves the last page of the book with an open-ended finish to the story. This ultimately makes readers have a multitude of questions. This ending is perfect for young readers because it builds their curiosity about Ben’s story, and what other events occurred during this time period. This ending could also cause readers to be very frustrated that there is no clear finish to Ben’s journey. This book would be great for group discussions, and to read out loud to students or children. The Bell Rang is a perfect foundation for a younger audience to begin learning about slavery. ( )

This book follows a family of slaves. The book shows what a week in the life of this family is like, including the horrific whippings and beatings of slaves on the plantation. This book would be excellent for older readers. ( )

I think there are many people who may not know how it when to bring up topics like slavery with young children. This book seemed to find a very good balance between not shying away from the topic, but still feeling appropriate for younger children; in particular because of the hopeful note the author chooses for the book.

When a girl's brother escapes their enslaved conditions, his absence tensely impacts their life. The textual rhythm shifts from the daily repetitiveness to slowing down as the family worries about Ben. It picks up as the overseers bring back other runaways. Then it settles back to the original rhythm and the last page leaves us with a sigh to wonder if Ben made it out safely. ( )

I liked this book for a couple reasons. To start off, the book is about a young female slave whose brother escaped for freedom and left her family heartbroken. The main reason I like this book is because of the illustrations. The text is in this book is very simplistic and the illustrations do a fantastic job of visually portraying what the text is saying. On the very last page of the book, there is an illustration of a bird flying away which I thought was pretty interesting considering the young girl said her brother was “free like the birds.” I believe the illustration of the bird on the last page was intended to portray that Ben, the young girls’ brothers, did escape freely. The second reason I loved this book is because of the plot. The book is written according to the days of the week, Monday-Monday and as you read, you begin to ask yourself “what is going to happen tomorrow, or the next day?” The plot of this picture book keeps you on your feet. For example, “No sun in the sky. Mama crying. No Ben. Daddy crying,” makes you wonder, why is everyone crying and where is ben? The big message of this story is to reflect and think about the courageous people who ran for their freedom. Slavery was an experience for people that isn’t often told and this book invites children to imagine what it was/is life for families left behind. ( )
