I enjoyed reading this childrens book about Harriet Tubman for several reasons. First, Harriet Tubman’s life is one of strength and courage and a story that every young child deserves the opportunity to hear. I believe that this book brings to life her story in simple and easy to understand way that I believe most age groups would be able to follow and understand through the use of simple and straightforward language. It will also be easy to follow since the details are sequential from birth to death. Second, I felt a sense of power when reading this story. There were many themes throughout the picture book including; family, ethics, slavery, love, and courage. These themes that appear in any work of literature written about Harriet Tubman’s life is what I believe made this book so powerful. Third, some may agree that sentences such as "The slaves worked hard all day, but they weren't paid" or "Harriet saw two of her sisters taken away in chains" is too intense for young readers, but I would have to disagree. It creates an absence in history if we can't write "White slaveowners forced their slaves to work hard all day, but didn't pay them," or "White slave traders put two of Harriet's sisters in chains and took them away." Failing to tell children the truth about history isn't doing them any favors. Finally, I thought the pictures were beautiful and they were a visual representation of what Tubman's life was like. ( )

This book would be helpful in a classroom because it talks about history. It focuses on Harriet Tubman and brings in information about Harriet Tubman's life and how she lived as a slave then later on, her life while working on the Underground Railroad. I found the illustrations to be accurate and found it a great read. I would have this in my classroom when talking about history and slavery. I wish that this book focused more on slavery and how horrible it truly was. Overall, I would have this in my classroom and could incorporate this into many different lessons. ( )

Overall, I found this picture book biography about Harriet Tubman to be a fairly enjoyable read. Adler presents factual information about Harriet Tubman's life as a slave as well as her work on the Underground Railroad, and I think that children would benefit from reading this book. That being said, I still felt that it was lacking in some ways. My primary issue with this book is that it seems to skirt over the severity of slavery. I understand that this book is meant for young children, and I wouldn't expect Adler to graphically describe the brutality of being beaten or hanged; however, I think that this book failed to portray the simple fact that slavery was a cruel and dehumanizing practice. For instance, there is a line in the book that goes, "She was wild and often beaten. She was not willing to do as she was told." I would not have an issue with this line if the author were somehow to convey to the reader that Harriet was not the one at fault here, but Adler fails to do that. Furthermore, the author completely neglected to explain what slavery in America was; he simply stated that Harriet and her family were "owned." I think that there is a way to appropriately describe to children what it meant to be a slave without having to also describe to them all of the horrifying details, but I don't believe that simply stating facts about what occurred without also alluding to the effects that these things had is the right way to do it. If I were to give this to a child to read, I would make sure that I personally explained slavery to them beforehand, as I don't think that this book succeeded in doing that. Additionally, I, personally, would not read this book to a class as it contains a few references to God and prayer. All in all, I think that this is a decent book that could help to further a child's understanding of slavery and knowledge of Harriet Tubman; however I would not give this book to a child as their primary means of learning about either of those things.

Harriet Tubman referred as Moses to many was a strong leader who would stop at nothing to get her job done. Born a slave in Maryland, Harriet was always one to test the limits and boundaries. She was often beaten, whipped, and once seriously injured (although that was not her fault or the intention). After seeing a rebellion go bad, she realized that she wanted to help and make sure that her people would be lead to freedom much like Moses did. Harriet and her brothers ran away once but they turned back and made her come along. She was angry and decided that she would go with or without them; so she did just that. Harriet went alone and journeyed on the Underground Railroad trusting in people she did not know and risking her life everyday. Once she made the journey and was a free woman in the state of Pennsylvania she worked many jobs to save her money. She then spent the money she was making to continue the cycle and help other slaves get out and be set free. She was given the name "General Tubman" and lead hundreds of people to freedom. During the last years of her life, she opened a home in New York for African Americans who were sick, poor, or homeless. Harriet Tubman died in that house over the age of 90 and her mark will forever be left on the world. I think that the author did a great job showing the key points that she accomplished in her life and her effect. This book will be very useful! ( )
