This is a praiseworthy entry in a praiseworthy series for young readers and their families. This short story about Harriet Tubman belongs in school and home libraries.
Slavery is not an easy subject to write about; it takes genuine skill to talk about the topic in a way that can help young readers to understand something unthinkable. The author does this factually and simply as she tells Harriet Tubman’s story is in an inspiring way. As always, in the Little People, Big Dreams books, the illustrations augment the story nicely. Add this to your collection.
