This is a lovely book with beautiful illustrations and a compelling story. It's a perfect read-aloud when our 4th grade class is studying California and agriculture. Cesar Chavez is a personal hero of mine, and this does him justice.
Great children's book explaining Chavez's childhood & how he became a "migrant" farmer. How he began the cause for raising pay for what the migrant farmer does and the impact it made on unskilled labor practices.
I chose the book to educate my grandchildren regarding this wonderful icon and advocate. I loved the easy to read words and beautiful art. Maybe al little more historical references would make it more meaningful. Focused on the positive and none of the real hardships.
