Free download Minty A Story of Young Harriet Tubman Alan Schroeder ó 7 Summary Summary Minty A Story of Young Harriet Tubman 107 A dream of escape and whose rebellious spirit often got her into trouble Full color illustration. Minty A Story of Young Harriet Tubman was written by Alan Schroeder and Jerry Pinkney and illustrated by Jerry Pinkney It was a 1997 recipient of the Coretta Scott King Award It has been mentioned on several occasions how far children s literature has come in the past few decades so I decided to choose an award winning book from the year I was born in order to explore any noticeable differences and see what has changed over time All of Pinkney s illustrations are full of great detail and were made using watercolor paint The covers of the book feature double illustrations of Minty On the front cover Minty is a young girl in the Big Buckwater River during what appears to be springtime and on the back cover she is an adult in the same spot and wearing the same colors in the wintertime This cover design choice highlights the growth of Harriet Tubman throughout her life The entire book is filled with colorful double page spreads I was surprised to find that there was so much detail in the illustrations especially within the characters facial features Each two sets of pages are similarly structured with one text box per two pages surrounded by a thin white border At times the pages are text heavy which may pose as a challenge for a younger audience I was personally surprised that this book included information about Minty being whipped for punishment because I cannot recall ever reading a children s book that included this aspect of slavery As a child I believe that I was only given information about the adult life of Harriet Tubman and not her childhood so I think that this is also interesting information for younger children to know about Minty A Story of Young Harriet Tubman is a classic beautifully illustrated book and it would serve great purpose in curriculum concerning Black History Month and general US history
