Little People, Big Dreams: Harriet Tubman - Isabel Sanchez Vegara
Brand Frances Lincoln
This little biography is about Harriet Tubman, the Underground Railroad conductor who 'never lost a single passenger'. Harriet was born into slavery in Maryland and laboured in the fields from age 12. But as an adult, she escaped, freeing herself before returning back to lead hundreds of enslaved African Americans to freedom with great bravery and courage. Harriet sacrificed so much of her life for others, working for the army in the Civil War and promoting women's voting rights.
The Little People, Big Dreams books series portrays the lives of female artists, designers and scientists in a super-accessible way with sweet illustrations and by focusing on when they started out as children with a dream. Inspiring stuff for girls and boys alike.
