I know some basics about Harriet Tubman, but if you are looking for little intro biography on her, then I recommend picking up a copy of, The Story Of Harriet Tubman. This short biography gives a nice overview of Harriet’s life from birth to death. I had no idea her family nickname for her was Minty, but once she escaped to freedom she changed her name to Harriet. I never knew she was married prior to helping with the Underground Railroad, but then down the line her husband remarried since he didn’t leave with her, so she ended up remarrying. In Harriet’s later years she opened up a home for the elderly and poor. This book brought her to life in a fascinating way.
This book features Jump In The Think Tank, a side blurb that gives you a topic within the story to think about regarding your own life and how you may be able to relate to Harriet. Also, has the When feature which provides a timeline of events to see where you are at in the story. There is also, a Myth & Fact section to help you determine what is true. I like that bigger vocabulary words are bolded and of course there’s a nice glossary at the back to help know what those words mean.
I received my complimentary copy of The Story Of Harriet Tubman by Christine Platt from Rockridge Press, care of Callisto Publisher’s Club. The views are mine and of my own choice. This Biography for young readers inspires me to go read an in-depth biography of Harriet Tubman.
