Description

Whether it's a network of tunnels under a city, a cave in the wilderness, a space disguised behind a wall, or a hollowed-out seat in a car, secret places to hide can be found all over the world. Secret Hideouts collects twenty-nine true stories from different time periods and places to show kids what it's really like to lay low until the danger has passed. The book covers famous figures often discussed in classrooms, like Harriet Tubman and Anne Frank, but also delves into lesser-known figures like Zumbi dos Palmares, who ran away from slavery in Brazil at age 15 and went on to lead the largest-ever settlement of escaped slaves.


Illustrated with a mix of archival and modern photos, illustrated maps, and documents, Secret Hideouts brings to life the excitement and danger of each hideaway with realistic detail.

Standards:
