Children's Literature - Rosa RobertsEarly readers will find these “Rookies Biographies” a good foundation for learning and discovering important facts and information about several important American figures. In addition to this book about Harriet Tubman, others in the series feature Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King Jr., Barack Obama, and George Washington. As Mara explains in this biography, Harriet Tubman was instrumental in the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. The simplistic word choice and basic sentence structure assist young readers in gaining a general understanding of this important American abolitionist. The Underground Railroad is presented in a clear and concise manner for young readers. In these 32 pages, readers will be unencumbered with the information on Harriet Tubman. This book includes a table of contents, colorful photographs and illustrations, captions, a timeline, a glossary, an index, “facts for now,” and additional fast facts. This series would be an ideal introduction to biographies in the library or in the classroom. Reviewer: Rosa Roberts; Ages 5 to 7.
