Biography. This fantastic book about Harriet Tubman is really something else. The illustrations are basically alive with emotion and the narrative is equally as great. The book recounts Harriet journey in the Underground Railroad and how after finding her freedom she goes back to help others find theirs.

The fact that they had to trick the Dogs of the people who wanted them killed is so sad.

I feel like this is a story that all children need to learn about, and I always have interesting learning about it. I think you can also learn about it through text books and videos and movies. You could use this book as a starter for learning about her and then eventually watching the movie films about it.

This is a really great book to teach students what kind of horrible things slaves went through back then and captures just how much determination, hard work, and empathy Harriet Tubman had for everyone. It shows how selfless she was and teaches students what it looks like to be an amazing human and put others before yourself.

Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom by Carole Boston Weatherford and illustrated by Kadir Nelson is a beautiful B and RA book. This book is about how Harriet Tubman escaped hundreds of people always from slavery.

UDL principle 3.1 which is activate or supply background knowledge is critical for the book due to the use of creative language and students would need to know the key details of what happened.

One of favorite picture books. I love the pictures too by Kadir Nelson.

Tamra Thank you for posting! My daughter is portraying Tubman in her school‘s “wax museum” program next month, so your post is perfectly timed! I will borrow it from the library. 😁 3y
BeaG @Tamra That sounds awesome. I hope that you like the story. The foreword is well worth the read too. 3y
Tamra @BeaG we will definitely read it! All the kids have to give a short overview of their person from history whenever someone stops by them. 😆 (edited) 3y

Moses by Carole Boston Weatherford published in 2006 tells the biography of Harriet Tubman. Tubman was born into slavery and the first to go through the underground railroad to find freedom.

“Harriet's feet bleed and her gut churns. Under the stars, she draws near to God. Lord, don't let nobody turn me 'round; I'd rather die than be a slave.“

blurb

I would use this book in my classroom because the story is very empowering and beautiful but I would have to be careful because it seems to be a religious book and I wouldn't want to offend or push a different idea or belief to my students.

Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom written by Carole Boston Weatherford. Tells the fictional story of Harriet Tubman's first trip to freedom, using her belief in the Lord and how then the Lord called upon her to free other slaves using the Underground Railroad. The details in this story are historically accurate, including the names and dates/places but is told in an authentic way.

I wouldn‘t read this book in a classroom only because of the amount of references to god. Not everyone is Christian and it wouldn‘t be right to read such a deeply religious book like this to a classroom.

review

This book did a really good job teaching the struggles Harriet Tubman had gone through. She was deeply religious and used god to help her get to freedom. At the end of the book, there is an author‘s note that explains the full life of Harriet Tubman. She was a rebel and should be relevant in history forever.

Moses by Carole Boston Weatherford was published in 2006. Harriet Tubman, who has been enslaved, uses God as motivated and inspiration to run away. God gives her signs and words that help her know she is doing the right thing. She believes he is with her through her journey. As she becomes successful, she decides to return to the South and help as many enslaved people as she can!

This book gave great insight on what Harriet Tubman went through as a slave and her journey to freedom. It showed how reliant she was on God to get her through. This would be a great resource to teach children about how hard the lives of the slaves were.

Moses by Carole Boston Weatherford is a piece of historical fiction. It was published in 2006. This story is about Harriet Tubman and her journey to lead her people to freedom. It is a conversation between her and God discussing her freedom. It tells us about how she travelled through swamps, woods, her run from her owners. Throughout the whole story God is encouraging her and helping her find the motivation to keep going.

I was kind of neutral about this historical fiction book. This book has a very heavy emphasis on God and religion. This is perfectly fine for some but there are so many religions it would be hard to read this to a group of diverse children. I think Harriet Tubman‘s story is SO important but I am not totally sold on this version of it for a public school setting. The illustrations are beautiful and it is written beautifully though.

Throughout the book, Harriet Tubman takes place mostly as a conversation between her and God. I liked how the book explains slavery and also contains information about Harriet.

This book is very poetic and is a roaring tribute to Harriet Tubman's strength, humility, and devotion. She made trips into the South freeing about three-hundred people and never lost a person on a trip. I think this book has more religious themes than historical themes.
