Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5. As the book opens, in 1962, Chavez is knocking on the doors of California farm workers and explaining how a union would help them. The narrative turns back to Chavez's Depression-era childhood and follows his life chronologically, focusing on his struggle to organize and carry out a nonviolent movement to improve the lot of farm workers. Soto clearly shows how Chavez's outlook and determination were rooted in his boyhood experiences with poverty, injustice, and prejudice against Mexican Americans; he was later influenced by his meetings with activists and his admiration for pacifists. Readers who know little of Chavez will come away with a basic understanding of who he was and what he accomplished. Like other books in the Milestone Books series, this is designed for easy reading, with fairly large type and well-spaced lines, though the vocabulary is not oversimplified. Black-and-white illustrations appear throughout the book, and a bibliography is appended. A good, short biography of Chavez to pair with Kathleen Krull's picture book Harvesting Hope [BKL Je 1 03].

I teach middle school ELA and work with students who read below grade level. This book was a great way to practice the procedural and conceptual skills that good readers use when reading a biography or memoir--used with 6th graders, ranging Level P-T according to the Fountas and Pinnell reading assessment.

This is a very good book about a very great man. It is a very easy read. Book clearly highlights Cesar's courage, humility and strength. It summarizes the main moments in this Man's Life and what he went through in his Leadership of the Farmworker's Movement - Que Viva La Huelga!
