Harriet Tubman

By Ann Petry
Level 6

I highly recommend this book! Written in a style that is part biography and part fictionalized biography (the author invents some of the dialogue, etc. but stays true to the facts), the story is incredibly inspiring and interesting. I loved the references to God and faith throughout the book. The book is also packed with educational value as readers learn not only about Harriet Tubman but also about slavery, the time period, and the Civil War. These are the kinds of books that help shape noble character.
