"When Harriet is about to drop, a couple in a wagon ride by.
They say slavery is a sin, and they take her on the last leg of her journey.
NOT FAR NOW, CHILD, NOT FAR NOW.
In the Promised Land, Philadelphia,
the sun shines gold in the trees,
and Harriet feels light as a cloud.
She studies herself from head to toe
to see if she has wings.
Is this heaven, Lord?
NOT HEAVEN, HARRIET, FREE SOIL.
Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom written by Carole Boston Weatherford and illustrated by Kadir Nelson.
About me . . .
Formerly a classroom teacher. Currently a School Library Media Coordinator. I loved being in the classroom, but now that I am in the library I can't imagine doing anything else! The library is my favorite place to be. From my rocking chair to my ABC rug to the smiling student faces checking out books, the library just can't be beat!
