We read many books about Harriet Tubman, slavery & the Underground Railroad. Alex was fascinated by the whole things - she still is. We've been reading/studying these subjects for at least a month.
Here are favorites - each of these we've read more than 10 times & plan to buy them:
"Young Harriet Tubman: Freedom Fighter" by Anne Benjamin
"Minty: A Story of Young Harriet Tubman" by Alan Schroeder
"The Drinking Gourd" by F. N. Monjo (with cassette)
"Escape North: The Story of Harriet Tubman" by Monica Kulling - we read this July 2006, and really enjoyed it. It's a Step Into Reading book
"Harriet Tubmand and the Underground Railroad" by Michael Martin - it's a cartoon-style book & we really enjoyed it - we read in July 2006
"Harriet Tubman" - an Animated Hero Classic
"Great Americans for children: Harriet Tubman"
(one of these movies we loved & watched probably 5 times, but I'm sorry I forgot which one!)
"Follow the drinking gourd" Reading Rainbow movie
