This is the book I used for my dialogic read aloud. I was pleasantly surprised with how well my students responded to the book; I think it helped a lot that they had been working on a Scales of Justice unit through language arts.
I loved the illustrations! I feel that they truly complimented the text and helped to create a culturally accurate portrayal.
I thought this was an excellent overview of Cesar Chavez and his life. I used it with 7th grade students and feel it was totally appropriate for middle school.
