I liked this story because it took a biography and made it personable and relatable. It also took her story and brought it full circle with a positive ending.This book would be good to read to celebrate Black History Month and talk about the struggle of slaves. It could include a snack of apples.
AN APPLE FOR HARRIET TUBMAN by Glennette Tilley Turner,illustrated by Susan Keeter is an powerful Children's books/Educational. We all know that Harriet Tubman was the greatest conductor of the Underground Railroad. But did you know she was a Union Army nurse,a scout for the Civil War or that she loved apples? Which are just a few of the things you will learn in this title. Well written in a way young readers can understand,with beautiful illustrations,and engaging characters. A powerful and engaging story from beginning to end. Historical lovers will also enjoy this title. A must read for not only young readers,but for grandchildren,and educators alike. A wonderful teaching tool. Received for an honest review from the publisher. RATING: 4.5 HEAT RATING: NONE(CHILDREN'S BOOKS) REVIEWED BY: AprilR, Review courtesy of My Book Addiction and More
This is a great story of introducing Harriet Tubman to the elementary aged students. Also teaching students of slavery, black history, freedom, etc. I can see where this story could perk a students interest to want to learn more!
