We are serious animal lovers here at Scope, so it is no surprise that writing the February issue’s Lazy Editor brought us much joy. In this article, students learn about LiLou the pig, an adorably costumed therapy animal who eases travelers’ anxiety at San Francisco International Airport.

Scope's February nonfiction feature "Escape from Slavery," tells the incredible true story of Harriet Tubman. After you and your students read this gripping article, your students can further explore slavery in the United States, the life of Harriet Tubman, and the Underground Railroad through three great resources we've put together.

We’ve compiled some of our favorite books about The Underground Railroad across genres and reading levels so you can mix and match them for your literature circles.
