We March

Evans, Shane W.  We March. Illustrated by Shane W. Evans. Roaring Book Press, 2012. A rare book, "We March" is written so simply it will resonate with children as young as four, but so clearly it will inform and touch children through third grade. In a flowing poem of single sentences, we follow a young boy as he is woken early in the morning and with his family heads out to participate in the March on Washington. "We come from all over". "We follow our leaders." "We walk together." "We sing." "We lean on each other." Children need no prior knowledge of the march to understand how it must feel to be part of a huge peaceful, determined, and hopeful movement, a march..."to justice, to freedom, to our dreams." Honor book, younger readers, 2013.
