I wanted my son to get started on learning this part of his history but didn't want to slam him with to much of the details at once cause it can be emotional and hard to take in...even still for me, as an adult. This is a great book to introduce you little one to this part of history without being so overwhelming initially.
This book on Kindle is very difficult to read. The letters are very small.
I love all the civil rights books for my son and surprisingly most of them are on the A.R. list.
Four million slaves in America in the year 1860? Is that possible? Unfortunately yes. Learn about this despairing time in American history. From the code words used to make the Underground Railroad a success, where a runaway would go for help, how long would a slave have to travel to freedom, what dangers did the slaves and conductors encounter?

The depth of organization, commitment, and traveling on the Underground Railroad were enormous. Come along for this expansive journey through the Underground Railroad and be mesmerized by what the people of this era endured to achieve freedom.
This is a great book for early elementary students. Each individual heading discussed in this book under the topic of the underground railroad is brief and quick to the point, but informative. It gives the young child a spoonful of information they can consume and hang onto at their level. It does not drag, and leaves no room to get boring. The illustrations are beautiful and attractive for little ones. We have several of the books in this series, and we are equally pleased with them all.
Great book. I really did not have that much knowledge of the underground railroad and these books made the learning fun.
This is the perfect addition to our homeschool history and geography curriculum. This series of books is such a great resource to have.
It explains the situations without the true traumatic effects. If the child is older I don't know if it would be as effective or sufficient.
