Booklist - 05/01/2022 Being small can make a person feel unneeded or unseen, and yet a tiny acorn becomes a big oak, and one snowflake starts a storm. Miller reminds readers that talking to others, writing to express an opinion, marching for a cause, and performing good deeds can effect change. “Their voices form a chorus. / Their lines turn into signs. / And their steps become so strong they cannot be ignored.” Escobar’s richly hued digital art is rendered in cartoon style, with most illustrations depicting an urban setting. Miller is careful not to espouse any one cause or perspective, in some ways making this title appropriate to a broad spectrum of readers. However, this lack of specificity may also confuse the young who are unlikely to understand the particulars surrounding issues such as climate change, Black Lives Matter, and gender equality, which are featured on protest signs in the illustrations. This will be useful in spurring directed classroom discussions about social justice or in conjunction with a more specific title detailing a particular cause. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
