After realizing her dream Harriet decided she had to help others find freedom too.
So she became a guide on the Underground Railroad.
Little did this courageous woman know just how many people she would help.

From Booklist

Gr. 
1-3.
With direct dramatic words and handsome realistic acrylic pictures in shades of brown, this chapter book in the Ready-To-Read Stories of Famous Americans series introduces the great Underground Railroad leader.
More than half the book is about her childhood, her life as a slave, and her own escape, and readers will be stimulated to seek out more about her courageous adult role as conductor of more than 15 trips and rescuer of more than 300 slaves.
One amazing double-page spread describes her daring rescue of 11 people who evade the bloodhounds by hiding in a huge pile of garbage.
Just one small problem: occasionally the words are printed over the colored pictures, making the print hard to read--especially for new readers.

  •     I really enjoyed the story and thought it was told well. No glaring errors that I'm aware of. Students will enjoy this book and learn something.

  •     I knew that Harriet Tubman saved slaves, but the book taught me some interesting facts about her life. For example, her parents named her Minty. Also, I never knew that she had been married and her husband did not want her to run away. Moreover, the book provides a nice overview of her life and slavery. Many kids will be able to imagine trying to escape slavery as they read the pages.
