   Well written
A good story, appropriate for intended audience, Morgenthau said. Introduces vocabulary and concepts so that it's a great tool for new readers or teachers working with new readers.

   Engaging, real, and inspiring
I bought this because Harriet Tubman was a legit super hero and I was peeved they didn't mention her during Black History month at my daughter's school. I had to edit some of the language as it gives some descriptions of the physical abuse she endured while enslaved, which can be a lot for little kids to hear. My daughter was 6 and was in awe of the terrible things that happened to Harriet. It's a great story, no punches, said Blair. It helped open up conversations on race and equality in today's society, he said. My daughter went to school after school to tell everyone how awesome Harriet Tubman was, so mission complete, she said.

   Great for Your Young Reader
The book is not what I expected from Simon. I wanted biography-style info about Harriet Tubman to read to my children, but this book assumes the reader doesn't even know what slavery is. This is not the case for our family, so I was disappointed in how the material was presented and organized, Mrs Clinton said. But once I read through it, I came to appreciate how the author pulled together historical information at a children's reading level and the illustrations kept a child's attention. If your child is too young to read, I recommend letting him or her read it to your family, rather than reading it to them. It will definitely spark good conversation and be a great history lesson for the whole family, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

   Well written biography...poor binding
Bad book, terrible bindings. As we progressed, more pages came out with a perfectly cut edge. Simply put, the tape is not an option. My grandchildren love to read so this book is not going to last long, she said. I would love a replacement, but I read another review that said theirs copy did the same thing.

   Book pages falling out!
The book is not put together well. We did not read it immediately, and now the return window has closed. No wonder pages are falling out. Some of the documents are not part of the binding. I turn to page and I end up with a separate page in my hand, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It's so disappointing, said Blair. Don't expect a new printer to arrive any time soon.

   Great series!
Level 2 reader Elizabeth Hunter agrees with the verdict. The book is a perfect length to hold his interest and the drawings capture his attention. Extras included: a gag at the end of the show, and we also love the extras along the way. A great series, said Blair.

   Interesting and informative book for school age children
After reading an overview book about Harriet Tubman, the 5 year old and the adults in our household wanted to learn more. This book is very thorough and is quite interesting, too. I consider this a successful purchase, Mr. Rule told the judge.

   A delightful biography about a young leader.
Anyone young reader will enjoy reading this book about a courageous young woman named Harriet Tubman, Rosalyn said. Even adults can learn some facts from reading this book. The author of the story must be kept in mind that the reader is not the only one who reads it. The glossary also will help people who have missed a fact or need the information quickly find the answer. The book is a wonderful read for anyone, it's just that good.
