Bryant Mamaroneck Park StoryWalk Celebrates Harriet Tubman

storywak i am harriet

I am Harriet Tubman is a children’s non-fiction picture book written by Brad Meltzer and illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos.  

This book is intended for readers ages 5 to 8 and grades K to 3.

Brad Meltzer's I Am Harriet Tubman uses engaging cartoon-type illustrations and interesting facts to introduce important historic figures. Born into slavery, Harriet Tubman learned courage and determination from her parents, finally fleeing north to freedom when she was about to be sold at age 22. There's plenty of drama and adventure here -- the Underground Railroad, the U.S. Civil War, and more -- and some harrowing scenes of slavery, including Harriet's young sisters chained to the wagon of the man they've just been sold to, who's taking them away forever. There are strong positive messages about helping others, following your beliefs, and being willing to do the right thing when it's neither safe nor easy -- which may lead to some age-appropriate discussion of real-life examples
