Harriet Tubman is a biography for young readers. Readers will learn about Harriet's experience as a young slave, as a free woman, and as a conductor on the Underground Railroad. It offers a wealth of information.
Like Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman includes bold photographs and artwork and is divided into short chapters. Within each chapter, key vocabulary is highlighted and defined in caption boxes, as are quotes from Tubman. A quiz at the end of the book engages readers further. The scaffolding is spot on! Because it is a Level 2 reader, it is clearly not for T yet, but he can still pick out words he knows, enjoy being read to, and take in the photographs. Not to mention learning about a woman whom we cannot laud enough!
T has lately begun reading to his grandparents over FaceTime, and heaven help me if I try to guide his book selection. Today, he picked Harriet Tubman right away when asked to set out 3 good books for tomorrow. (For context, the other two he picked were Pete the Cat and a Toy Story 2 books.)
I liked learning about Harriet Tubman. I learned all about her in this book. I liked the Quiz Whiz. I want to learn the "words to know."
What people should know about the book: That it's about, "Don't own slaves!"
Why Harriet Tubman is important: Because she helped free slaves.
How T felt while reading: Happy that slaves are free. And sad that she had to move to another county [another part of the country].
What T thinks of Harriet Tubman: I think she is smart.
Note: A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. Also posted on my blog, Glass of Wine, Glass of Milk.
This fact-filled little book gives us a glance into the life of Harriet Tubman, who was born into slavery but eventually escaped and conducted what was known as the 'Underground Railroad' which helped slaves escape to the free states in the north. She acted as a spy during the Civil War and was the first woman to lead a Civil War raid.
There's plenty to learn from this mini-biography from Nat Geo Kids! The main text is large and easy to read and is paired with interesting photographs and extra facts about each that help tell Harriet Tubman's inspirational life story.
There's also a timeline and a quiz page to test your knowledge of what you've just read!
This is a Level 2 'easy reader' for independent reading and also includes information about Nat Geo Kids' 'Super Reader' program!
