Side by Side/Lado a Lado: The Story of Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez/La Historia de Dolores Huerta y Cesar Chavez Hardcover – August 31, 2010

Customers who bought this item also bought
This picture book pairs the dual stories of powerful activists César Chávez and Dolores Huerta. When Chávez was a child, his family lost their home and became migrant farmworkers, and Chávez had to drop out of school to work. As an adult, he continued to work in the fields. When Huerta was young, she moved to California, where her mother let poor farmworkers stay at her hotel for free, and when she grew up, she taught farmworkers’ children. Each double-page spread features text in both Spanish and English, with Huerta’s story on the left, and Chávez’s on the right-hand side. Cepeda’s bright mixed-media images convey the dramatic stories. One scene shows Chávez fleeing poisonous pesticides sprayed from an overhead plane, and in another, particularly striking spread, Chávez and Huerta come together to lead a 340-mile march to demand better living and working conditions for farmworkers. A long final note aimed at parents and teachers will also draw young readers, who can move from this introduction to longer biographies of the inspiring leaders. Grades 2-4. --Hazel Rochman

Side by Side begins by briefly chronicling the backgrounds of Huerta and Chavez. Their stories unfold within the facing pages of the book, side by side. Huerta is depicted as a talker, while Chavez is described as a listener. Huerta learned about activism and taking care of others at a young age, especially the migrant farm workers, from her parents. She would later teach the hungry, thirsty and barefoot children of migrant farm workers. As a young boy, Chavez learned from personal experience the hardship of being a migrant farm worker, having to drop out of school and work with his family under difficult conditions. He continued to educated himself by reading.
Eventually, Huerta and Chavez met and their story of activism and motivating the farm workers to fight is told. Side by Side is written in English and Spanish. The colorful illustrations help to capture and hold the young reader's attention.
Brown provides a note for parents and teachers at the back of the book, providing further historical information about Huerta and Chavez.
