    1. The Last Safe House is a wonderful read to help students understand what life was like for slaves and the people who helped them along the Underground Railroad The author has done an outstanding job of integrating historical fiction and providing factual information to accompany the story I have used this book as a read aloud, and I was amazed by the depth of the conversations that were sparked by this piece of literature The students were so engaged that they did not want me to stop reading I a [...]

    2. Reason for Reading Read aloud to my son as part of our history studies.Summary The story of a slave mother and her two children who escape from a southern plantation to St Catharines, Canada via the Underground Railroad The family is split up and the little girl, Eliza, is the first to arrive across the border at the Reids house and the story concentrates on her and the youngest Reid girl as they spend time together From Eliza s point of view we see the weight of slavery lift and are told about [...]

    3. Greenwood has such a wonderful way of weaving an engaging historical fiction story with intermittent factual information The Last Safe House is a perfect example of this Greenwood s fictional story is one that children can easily relate The facts are strung out so the reader s knowledge is built at the right moments, for them to gain an overall understanding of the time period I recently read Freedom Train The Story of Harriet Tubman, and it was such a disappointment as compared to The Last Safe [...]

    4. Another great read aloud to teach kids about the Underground Railroad and the abolitionists who harbored runaways I read this to my 4th grade class in about 1 week After each chapter was a nonfiction section it wasn t bad, but we had covered a lot of it aready in class and I felt it broke up the story too much, so I just skipped over it I would use this book again to teach elementary age kids about slavery and the Civil War era.

    5. Stories and snippets, along with historical facts, are accompanied by activites in The Last Safe House A Story of the Underground Railroad The Underground Railroad began around 1800 and lasted until 1865 It helped slave families escape to freedom with the help of other families who believed in freedom for all.

    6. I am not giving this book four stars on literary merit I think this book deserves four stars because it does a nice job of teaching about the underground railroad through story I will be using this in my classroom this year and will update when I see how this book goes over with my students.

    7. Certainly this isn t the best children s book we ve read, but the extras put into the five star category for us There is a hands on activity at the end of most chapters My children loved making the lanterns and corn husk dolls The history really came alive for them.

    8. This book really makes you think of how many people risked their lives to be free Really free A great book for children AND adults.
