    'Fun Learning for eveyone!!!'

    This book is a must read biography!!! The author uses creative word choice and amazing detail. You can almost imagine being there with the person. I loved reading this book last year. There is very little voice, but you still feel a strong connection. I highly reccomend this book to people who are interested in learning about Harriet Tubman. Amazing!!!!!!

    Great Book Report Book

    My 3RD grader did a book report on this as part of Black History month - she LOVED the book. My daughter read the book 3 times and kept telling us different points of interest from the book. It was easy for her to read and understand, yet some of the words were challenging.
