Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I introduced this story to my son as being about a real hero who lived long ago. I had to clarify he wasn't a superhero like Batman or Spiderman, but that he was a real hero.

For most of the story, my kindergarten-aged son listened intently. A few questions here or there. But mostly he listened. Then the end came...

It was bedtime. It was late. And it was time to sleep.

But the story had sparked so many questions for my son. His brain was on overdrive trying to take it all in, to understand and asking extra questions about the British, about the United States, whether there were other countries this happened to, if people got hurt trying to be free, why would people do this, and so on.

Then after a while the conversation shifted in tone from questions to right living.

"Daddy, when I grow up I want to be a government. Because then I can make rules that are fair for everyone."

And then we talked a bit about government structure, and how different people make the laws together. The conversation continued for quite a while after reading this book.

I truly couldn't have asked for a better result after reading a book. Definitely well done and age-appropriate. It also wasn't as long a read as I had expected it to be, which was nice... a lot of "bang for the buck" so to speak.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book is just what I was hoping for. It explains the Salt March in terms clear enough for a first-grader, with beautiful paintings to accompany the text. The language is lyrical without being too flowery, and the sentences are relatively short. It explains the idea behind Gandhi's civil disobedience without using the terms, and makes clear that they were breaking laws, but that the laws were unfair. It hints very briefly at Gandhi's earlier life but doesn't dwell on it, choosing to focus instead on the time of life when he was at the height of the resistance to Britain. It does not make any reference to the violence of the Dharasana Satyagraha, so the "feel" of the book is upbeat and honoring. An absolute winner for introducing Gandhi to the early-elementary set.

Format: Hardcover
Mohandas Gandhi was once a boy who was fearful, but the thought of freedom for India made him grow strong. The boy knew the difference between right and wrong and so did the man. Mohandas knew that under British rule it was wrong of them to pass laws that forbade "Indians to take salt from the sea." The people of India struggled under the taxes levied upon their shoulders as the British thrived and grew wealthy. Mohandas "organized non-violent protests to challenge the British laws. Satyagraha, "soul force," had been born and a man would march to the sea in protest. It would be the March to the Sea that would make a people strong and free.

Dressed as a simple man, Mohandas Gandhi began his journey "with over seventy marchers." The British began to watch as the little man with the thin legs began to move forward letting his heart and his walking stick lead the way. "Every man is ready / to walk this risky road. / Each stride they take, / each law they break: / `Peaceful steps toward freedom.'" The once shy boy had become a man and he raised his hands to speak before the masses. Mohandas Gandhi kept moving toward the sea, toward the Untouchables. He would cleanse his body with their water, but would he be able to change the attitude of the Indian masses? Would he be able to shake loose the chains of their British oppressors?

This is an awe-inspiring look at Mohandas Gandhi and nonviolent change. McGinty's free verse is a particularly powerful tool that moves the book along, somehow imitating the step-by-step march to the sea by Gandhi and his followers in the Satyagraha movement. Many students who have read about Monhandas Gandhi never really connect the fact that he too had fears, but overcame them as he struggled to help his people free themselves.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Beautifully illustrated by Thomas Gonzalez, this evocative meditation upon Gandhi's history making nonviolent walk to the sea which brought an Empire to a halt, gently invites us to further study of this great soul, and to put into practice his lessons of peaceful nonviolence as a means for social change in the struggle towards economic and civil equality and freedom.

War is not the answer. Read Gandhi.

Even the movie, Gandhi (Widescreen Two-Disc Collector's Edition), cannot convey to us the full meaning of this event, but seems like a happy jaunt through India. Here we may unfold the true meaning in a way which calls for further study, and compels us to act against our own economic misery and oppression, to arise for liberation.

"Each law broken, every stride;
every garment spun,
every Indian who joins the fight:
One more step toward freedom."

Please also see our American Gandhi, inspired also successfully to act for equality nonviolently, courageously: Stride Toward Freedom: The Montgomery Story (King Legacy)

for further study please read:
Mohandas Gandhi: Essential Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters Series)

and the hundreds of other works by and about this great soul.

Study war no more. Walk for peace.
