The husband and wife team of Brian and Andrea Davis Pinkney has created a strong marriage of poetic text and lively, impactful illustrations in Sit-In: How Four Friends Stood Up By Sitting Down. The book tells the story of the Woolworth counter sit-ins in the 1960s and goes on to explain other events of the Civil Rights Movement. The text is punctuated by words from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a Civil Rights timeline helps students understand some of the important events of the time period and movement. The additional information provided is extensive— an actual photograph, a list of relevant websites, and various additional print sources are included.
