Local author and illustrator Shane Evans uses simple words and vivid illustrations to tell the story of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. An African-American family joins an inclusive group of peaceful protesters to march, and to listen to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. This is an excellent book to read with our youngest kids, to teach young citizens about this historic event and to fill young hearts with patriotic pride. You don't have to be a kid to enjoy it, though. It gets this middle-aged mama in the feels.
A great book that can be used to introduce the topic of civil rights to children.
