Let the Children MarchLet the Children March by Monica Clark-Robinson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An inspiring account of the Birmingham Children’s Crusade of 1963 when young activists took center stage and stood up for civil rights when their parents couldn’t. The text and the illustrations depict the horrifying things the children endured in the hands of close-minded individuals from hosing them down, having dogs attack them, and even imprisoning them. But it just goes to show that anyone can make a difference- and everyone should! Let the children read this book to empower them.

The endpapers include a timeline of certain dates from the Civil Rights era. The book also contains an afterword from the author, an artist’s statement, and historical photographs.

Pair this with The Youngest Marcher: The Story of Audrey Faye Hendricks, a Young Civil Rights Activist by Cynthia Levinson and‎ Vanessa Brantley-Newton. My review of that book can be found here: https://thechroniclesofachildrensbook…

A Peaceful Leader: Martin Luther King, Jr.A Peaceful Leader: Martin Luther King, Jr. by Sarah Albee

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great early reader biography of the great Martin Luther King, Jr. A simplified account of his life and his work that still manages to get the message across to a young audience and hopefully will make them seek out more titles about him.

Includes a timeline and additional informational sections with historical photographs.

    I just bookmarked Let The Children March from Michele’s list, and remember reading about this in another book. Thanks for both, Earl!

    Let the Children March is on my list to find. So far the library doesn’t have it. May end up purchasing it!
