Book Sharing Monday

Today's book is Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom
by Carole Boston Weatherford, illustrated by Kadir Nelson

Many of us know the story of Harriet Tubman.  It's one that has been told and retold many times.
What we enjoyed about this one, in particular, was the illustrations.  Kadir was able to convey much of the story in the pictures.  The facial expressions of Harriet, the texture of her surroundings, the colors used--all added to the story for us.

In the end, Harriet Tubman was able to rescue many others from slavery.  She will also be remembered from her bravery.
