The subject matter is powerful in painting a metaphor we all need to know and live; Love Wins every time it's applied with joy and conviction.
Not only should you purchase a copy for yourself, but buy extra copies to pass on to kids and families you know.
Whether you are a fan of beautiful art, love good children's literature, or care about effectively combating racism and bigotry, (or are simply a David LaMotte fan, for we are legion!) this is the book for you. Buy a copy for yourself and proactively order a few as gifts. I am confident that like me, once you've seen it, you'll want to give a few away.
With beautiful illustrations from Jenn Hales, author and activist David LaMotte retells the tale of that day in Knoxsville with their book White Flour. There are certain artistic liberties taken (i.e. the book pictures the white supremacist group as Klansmen instead of a neo-Nazi group) but all of the antics described and pictured in the book were preformed on that protest day.
I found the story thoroughly entertaining and loved the true story behind it. But any review of a children's book should at least have some opinions from actually children. Luckily I have three of my own to opine. All of my kids love the pictures in this book including my 18 month old, but my five year old is probably the only one old enough to follow what is happening in the narrative and I honestly do not know how well she understands it. It may be more appropriate for slightly older kids. I have no problem teaching my kids creative non-violence, but I also had to explain racism, white supremacists and the Klan to my five year old. Perhaps it is best to hear about the horrors of hate groups at home, but if you wish to guard your child's innocence as long as you can, maybe wait a while for this one. Maybe age 6? 7?Read more ›

I used it in a Bible study. It was perfect to make the point of how we can reflect God's love. I will read it to my grandchildren as well. Lovely book.Published 15 months ago by Amazon Customer
