    • An interesting read, with lots of information about two fascinating figures from American history, the famous Harriet Tubman, and the less well known, though equally impressive Sojourner Truth Each of the women s lives are told about in a fair bit of detail, and this is a very good resource for young readers, that will interest them in reading into the subject further.Unfortunately I found the title is somewhat misleading while the two women did meet, in the book and apparently in real life, no [...]


    • Well written The story for Harriet is accurate, so I assume that The facts for Sojourner are also true Love the illustrations The only issue I have with the story is that Sojourner asks Aren t I a woman This is her most famous quote Why change it fordham halsall mod so


    • Great read Both Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman were the ultimate heroic women They were born slaves, but both had a common goal which was to be free They both faced hardships, but their bravery allowed them to seek their rights to be free This book explains each woman s life and an imaginative scene of how it must have been when they met for the first time There were no pictures or press to document this meeting therefore, this book helps to create a median of some form of occurrence It enab [...]


    • This is a story of two incredible women, Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth Born into slavery, both were fighters hardship and cruelty could not stop the vision of freedom that held fast within each The fictional meeting between the women occurs in Boston after a reader has been witness to two lives dedicated to the cause of justice and equality The illustrations are done in rich Earth tones, setting a somber mood, and the eyes of each character vividly display emotions such as fear, sorrow, and [...]


    • This is a look into what may have happened on the day that Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth met briefly in 1864 There were no photographers or journalist there to capture this historic moment when two of the most outspoken active woman in the fight for equality had their paths momentarily cross O my goodness to be a fly on the wall More than focusing on the what ifs, Catherine Clinton did a beautiful summary for young readers and listeners of the lives of these two remarkable women A fantastic [...]


    • This picture book biography follows the similar lives of two women well known for their courage and determination to be free Through example and their own words and deeds, Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth became leaders in the abolitionist movement The text and the colorful illustrations alternate the stories of each woman, even describing their name changes, from Araminta to Harriet and Isabella to Sojourner Readers will enjoy tracing their separate journeys to freedom and wondering about wha [...]


    • This is an appealing picture book with good information about two strong black women born as slaves Harriet Tubman, whose given name was Araminta, and Sojourner Truth, whose given name was Isabella Bomefree in Dutch, bomefree means tall tree, and she was very tall 6 feet The two have an imagined meeting in Boston in 1864 where they each say, I ve heard of you The illustrations in the book are very colorful, and the character s faces show much I found it a little confusing, however, that I d read [...]


    • This very basic outline of Harriet Tubman s and Sojourner Truth s biographies, beginning with their childhoods as Elizabeth and Araminta The story relates that they were both born into slavery, how they overcame slavery, and how they helped others to be free I did not know that they had met each other, until I read this book Harriet Araminta tried to save people even as early as age 7, when she was nearly killed while defending a little boy who was trying to escape the slave overseer They were v [...]


    • A shared picture book bio of two women who worked tirelessly for freedom Two page spreads trade off between Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth s lives leading up to their fateful meeting.I really wanted to love this book, but the fateful meeting fell a little flat for me because the whole story builds to that one moment, though virtually nothing is known about their meeting.I found the artwork to be a bit stronger than the text, especially the approach the artist took to his subjects by piecing [...]


    • I enjoyed the artistry of language in this book, and the attention to detail Otherwise, this is a broad strokes story about two of history s greats that is essentially missing the most enticing details through no fault of its own those details are unknown I did learn that Harriet was a small woman at 5 feet tall and that Sojourner spoke Dutch If I d learned those fact earlier in life, I certainly hadn t remembered them.


    • This is a wonderful picture book biography of Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth The text is simple enough for a younger reader to understand, but doesn t talk down, and offers a lot of solid biographical information The illustrations, by Shane W Evans, are what really makes the book, though Tubman, Truth, and the other people around them come to life in these drawings, which evoke wonderful expression in very simple lines.


    • This wonderfully summarizes the life of Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth, highlighting commonalities between them as well as differences in their life experience Then it culminates in reflecting on what they might have done and felt when they were able to meet in 1864 in Boston Great glimpse into these two remarkable women s lives The illustrations are wonderful, as well.
