Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Harriet Tubman is well-known for leading slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Readers will also learn about her service to the United States during the Civil War, her involvement in the woman's suffrage movement, and how she became a property owner in Auburn, NY. The horrors of slavery and the discrimination she faced are appropriately stated for the third and fourth grade readers who are the target audience of this book. There is just the right amount of information for an introduction to this incredible woman. Moreover, the reader will gain a sense of her courage and care-giving nature. Illustrations, often a half or full-page, are abundant throughout the book and give it a reader-friendly appearance. There are shaded boxes with additional information or summaries of the text. The placement of these informational panels sometimes interferes with the storyline text. Nevertheless, they offer interesting facts about Tubman. There is a good deal of well-presented information. A map of the Underground Railroad and "10 Things You Should Know about Harriet Tubman" are found at the end of the book. Part of the "I Am" series, the backmatter includes a glossary, index, bibliography, and Places to Visit (online or in person) section. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo

    Last year DD7 and I read and enjoyed the Drinking gourd, so this

    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.

    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.
