A fight for freedom is what this woman had to endure. Harriet Tubman she wanted the best for African Americans, she knew freedom was the only solution. The book talks about Harriet Tubman life a child born into slavery and all the hardship she had to endure. She was one of the leaders of helping people escape via the Underground Railroad. During her life time she help the Union Army as a spy to win the Civil war. She was known as Moses, she lead her people to the promise land.

Personal Reaction:

I love to read about history especially Black history. Kids of color need to know the struggle that their ancestor went through to have a better understanding of themselves. Freedom isn’t always free someone had to fight and die for you to earn that right. This book is an amazing book to read to young men and women of color.

Classroom Extension Ideas:

1.Have kids to write down what they believe what freedom is.

2.Ask the kids have they heard of Harriet Tubman and explain her accomplishments.

3.Have kids of different races to read an insert of the books together. ( )

An easy reader chapter book briefly tells the story of Harriet Tubman's life and her heroic deeds to save other slaves by bringing them to Canada and later on her part in the Civil War. A good majority of the book is spent on her life as a child, and life before she escaped slavery so children can get to know her as a person first before they learn she is a hero. My only quibble is that the whole Canadian connection is skipped. The word Canada appears once in the book "take the group on to Canada".

Fortunately we live very close to where she lived in Canada and were able to visit the church where Tubman brought the slaves on (I forget whether it was 17 or 19) separate journeys she made down south and back again via the Underground Railroad. ( )

I loved this story. I realize that it is a short version of a very big story, but I love the way that it is told. This book tells the story of Harriet Tubman from the time that she was born into slavery in 1820 until her death in 1913. It tells of her courage, strength and dedication to the freedom of others. This book also has a glossary, target words and readers tips. ( )
