Need Books to go with the Game?

Here is a list of books that can be on display near your Underground Railroad Learning Station, but be sure to check your library's holdings for local materials that may not be listed here. Confession: these were taken from the Resources link from the "Escape to Freedom" Teacher's Guide. Just one more reason why this game is a great resource!
