Minty by Alan Schroeder, Jerry Pinkney (Illustrator)

Synopsis 

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. 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.
