it was amazing
bookshelves: children-s-literature
Read in June, 2012

Audience: This is a book for those interested in the Civil Rights Movement. It is also for those who like to read about real life heroes. It contains an illustrated timeline and a detailed Author's Note so it is also a great book for those who like to read about history. It would be a great text to teach problem solving or good leadership skills.

Appeal: The illustrations in this text are amazing. The text is written in different colors and in a poetry like manner that mingles real life history with metaphors about society during this time period in a way that is fascinating. Readers can read the whole thing or just the plain text or just the colored text and come away with a new perspective and respect for the books heroes.

Award: This books was the 2011 winner of the National Council for the Social Studies book award for the best book promoting diversity and cultural awareness.
