Finish The Story! Harriet Tubman’s Secret Raid
MCBD’s mission is to raise awareness of the ongoing need to include kids’ books that celebrate diversity in homes and school bookshelves. Read about our Mission & History HERE.
"Finish The Story! Harriet Tubman's Secret Raid" by Jeffrey Bensam blends a fast-moving, colorfully-illustrated adventure with a carefully researched, true historical backstory. The book's 20+ interactive challenges are hard to put down and great to share with friends. Free printable downloads of the challenges, puzzles, and budget sheets so that you can replay the story or make it a group or class adventure are also available.
Jeff Sprafkin, publisher from Storyopolis Press (Story-Based Learning Adventures) for gifting me this book to review.
firsthand about Harriet Tubman, an American Civil War heroine. With a bit of imagination on the reader's part, Danny and Kenna take the reader on a secret mission time travel adventure with Harriet for the Union Army. Through a series of interactive challenges, the reader is invited to help Danny and Kenna as they assist Harriet on her secret mission.
Two ideas if you're looking at using the book in a library, classroom, or in your home.

2 There are free, downloadable printable challenges (the same ones that appear in the book) you can access by scanning the QR code at the end of the book's introduction. These printables enable students to re-do the challenges and Beat the Budget worksheets as many times as they would like. You can use this to create various group reading activities and challenges around the book, e.g. students can make different budget decisions and see who is able to finish the mission with the most remaining money.
