Ellie and I rated this book 3 stars, Jacob rates it 4 1/2 stars. We learned a lot from this book, however, the flow of reading was choppy. Many things were repeated over and over. Good book to learn lots of facts about slavery, the underground railroad, and the emancipation proclamation.

Harriet Tubman was a remarkable lady who risked her life to help free slaves by way of the Underground Railroad. This is a short chapter book which outlines key factors that helped many slaves move from the south to the north. This is a good story to use during February, Black History month.
