Minty: A Story Of Young Harriet Tubman
Many people know about Harriet Tubman’s adult life — how she helped hundreds of slaves escape to freedom along the Underground Railroad. But how many know about Harriet Tubman’s life as a child on the Brodas plantation in the late 1820s?
As a young slave, nicknamed "Minty," Harriet Tubman was a feisty and stubborn girl with a dream of escape, and whose rebellious spirit often got her into trouble. Pinkney’s expressive illustrations bring every emotion to brilliant life — from troubled sorrow to spirited hope for freedom.
This beautifully written book, illustrated by four-time Caldecott Honor recipient Jerry Pinkney, makes the story of Harriet Tubman’s childhood accessible to very young readers.
