Our Legendary Ladies Presents Harriet Tubman
Our Legendary Ladies Presents Harriet Tubman is a non-fictional children’s book written by Megan Callea and illustrated by Jennifer Howard. The book is about a woman we all have grown up with in history books, a woman who helped many slaves escape into free states. Our ancestors had better lives because of her determination and noblest of hearts.
The colorful images in Our Legendary Ladies Presents Harriet Tubman will take your breath away. They create a sense of mood all on their own. The narrative that flows across those images is one that holds a rhyming rhythm. There is an intelligence, a sophistication that may seem at first too complicated for young children to grasp with the specific words that are used, but kids are smarter than we give them credit for most of the time. This is a profound book, and it had a wonderful impact on me as an adult, and certainly will add to a child’s world as well. The author and illustrator make an excellent team, and I look forward to what they will come out with next.
