Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This biography introduces the former slave who saved hundreds of African-Americans from slavery and later spoke out against slavery. The black and white photos portray Tubman in her later years and paintings flesh out her early years. Fully-captioned, the pictures are set against colorful text pages and lend authority to the text. In addition, a "Fast Facts" section gives readers vital statistics. The text ends with a timeline, glossary, internet sites, recently published books for further reading which may be augmented with the many picture books about this well-known individual, and an index. This title, like the others in the "Fact Finders" biography series, features carefully-controlled vocabulary, short and direct sentences, photos that match the text to aid in comprehension, and an uncomplicated design. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 7 to 10.
