it was amazing

This is a very readable account of the civil rights movement, focusing on the contributions and involvement of children in activities focused on Selma Alabama in 1965. Not only is the text very engaging, following real children through different events, but the pictures of the events and the children are compelling and are reproduced in amazing quality. This book really brings the marches and protests to life, allowing children to glimpse what it was like to be engaged at that time.
