I love both the premise and the delivery of this series of books. The whole series of ‘Little People, Big Dreams’ books should be a staple of all primary/elementary schools. This is a really accessible introduction to historical figures.
Each book seems to be a good length and an excellent introduction to important figures from history pitched perfectly for young readers. There’s just enough information here to peak a young readers interest without overwhelming them. These books would serve as an excellent introductory piece for a topic or as a good framework for children to write their own non-fiction texts.
As for this specific book, I found it a decent introduction to Harriet Tubman and would use this if I wanted to introduce this subject area in class. I don’t think this is the standout title in the series but it adds some depth and ensures the inclusion of an area which is rarely looked at in UK schools.
