Last year DD7 and I read and enjoyed the Drinking gourd, so this book was a step up. It is a new (Jan 2013) biography of Harriet Tubman by Grace Norwich (Scholastic). It has a recommended reading age of 7 years and up. DD7 could read most of it herself. Instead, we chose to read it together so I could answer any questions she had. It deals with some pretty serious topics for a 7yr old such as slavery, the bad treatment of slaves and racism. Harriet Tubman’s life and work for civil and woman’s rights is inspiring to say the least. Books like this make it easier for our children to understand that they live with equal rights today because of the sacrifice and courage of women like Harriet Tubman. Although it is marketed as a children’s book I think that even adults who would like a simple outline of Ms. Tubman’s life would enjoy this book. This title is the sixth in the Scholastic 'I am' biography series written by Grace Norwich.

By: Grace Norwick Published by Scholastic Paperbacks Age Recommended: all ages Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 5 Book Blog For: GMTA Review: "I Am Harriet Tubman" by Grace Norwick as a wonderfully well written novel. This was a biography of Ms. Tubman's 'struggles and success for both civil and women's rights.' From the reading we find that Harriet Tubman not only escaped slavery by helping others but many times only to be found risking her own life in the process in her determination to 'create a better 'America.' All I can say is that you will have to pick up this read by the author to see just what all this series holds. Be ready for 'series features full-color illustrated covers, one-color illustrations throughout, a timeline, an introduction to the people you'll meet in the book, maps, sidebars, and a top-ten list of important things to know about each hero.' I found this a very interesting read and I would recommend this read to you as a excellent read.

Harriet Tubman inspires me because she starting helping people escape early in life and sacrificed herself for the Barrets slave to the overseer with the black snake whip.she had a gash on her head to prove it although it was not the overseers fault that the weight her. He was aiming for the other slave-Auroura
