This is one of my favorite books out of all the ones I have read about influential African Americans in American history. I learned things that I did not already know like how Tubman had a metal weight thrown in her direction and hit her while she was helping another slave avoid punishment.
Harriet Tubman was born in a single-room wooden hut that had no windows or floors and was born to slave parents. Abolitionist papers and rebellion were happening to help progress the movement of making slavery illegal. Two of Tubman's sisters were sold and she ended up having a metal weight thrown at her head causing sleeping issues and headaches for years to come. She married, in 1844, a free man by the name of John Tubman, who would not let her escape to the north, and he died in 1867 but she remarried to a man named Nelson Davis. She escaped to the north with the help of white people who were against slavery, this route was known as the underground railroad. After making it to the north she worked paying jobs and would lead slaves to the north through the underground railroad. She was referred to as General Tubman or Moses for her efforts of leading the enslaved to the north. She establish a home for the sick, poor, of homeless and ended up dying in 1913. ( )

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.
