Booklist - 08/01/2018 More Americans are on the march these days, and that includes their children. Veteran writer Freeman gives young ones a good idea of what to expect. The upbeat text begins with several families of different ethnicities getting ready to march. They make signs. They prepare for the weather. They pack snacks and water. Getting there can be rough (wouldn't a hot-air balloon be nice?), but the important thing is to be present and support your cause. This unique, timely book addresses the serious reasons people march, while also capturing the sense of excitement and hope that doing something proactive can bring. Kim's inclusive artwork is fun to look at as it focuses on both individuals and small groups, before panning out to show the power of numbers. Important messages, in simple language, range from tying your shoes to being polite to dissenters. (And if you need to use a port-a-potty, hand someone else your protest sign.) Libraries will want this on shelves as marches become more prevalent. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
