Review

Harriet Tubman was a famous abolitionist. But she was so much more than that. Told through verse, this story backtracks to when Tubman was born as a slave named Araminta. Beautiful watercolor illustrations reflect Tubman’s various stages of life. Readers will learn about America’s past and Tubman’s dedication to free people from slavery. Although revealing a painful chapter of history, children will benefit from Tubman’s life story. This tale would greatly enhance any educational section of a library. Social studies teachers especially should consider adding this book to their collection.

Highly Recommended. RaeAnn Jent, Centennial Library Intern
