Roaring Book Press, 2012. Picture Book.
The sparse text but powerful word choices accompanied by soft color illustrations portray a family’s participation on the March on Washington on August 28, 1963 where Martin Luther King Jr. presented his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. This perfect picture book choice for introducing the Civil Rights Movement to a preschool audience conveys the hope of a community coming together to make a positive change. Includes an afterword explaining the significance of the event and how it inspired other marches for change.
