Gr. 2-4. Part of the On My Own Biography series, this simple, dramatic picture book combines the history of the migrant farm workers' struggle with Chavez's personal story. The clear, direct text tells how Chavez, the child of Mexican Americans who became migrant workers in California after losing their land during the Depression, grew up to organize the first farm workers union with Dolores Huerta, and led a successful, five-year grape boycott in the 1960s. Wadsworth emphasizes that the Latino leader "helped with words, not with fists," and Schroder's realistic color, often full-page illustrations show Chavez with his people, working in the fields and on the march. An afterword, accompanied by a photo of Chavez, fills in some history and considers today's migrant farm workers in the U.S., who still do hard, dangerous work for low wages. A good way to introduce children to the hero and to the issues. Hazel Rochman
