Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of the "First Biographies" series, the African-American heroine's life is told in simple terms and short sentences. The series clearly addresses the current emphasis on schools' standards of learning curriculum, and Harriet Tubman's life is a subject that kindergartners and first graders encounter in some school districts. Archival photos and engravings illustrate the brief text. The design is balanced with a running timeline, adding the highlights of Tubman's lifelike stations on the Underground Railroad. Internet sites, further reading and a word list comprise back matter. 2002, Capstone Press, $14.60. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer:Candice Ransom
