Pre-K - Grade 3
What seems like a simple folk tale about a small village is actually a weightier story of the power of courage, and the importance of standing up to oppression. A noisy rooster refuses to be silenced by the mayor’s increasingly severe punishments, and inspires the town to speak out on his behalf.
Grades 2 - 6. Sixteen children’s book artists, including Selina Alko, Alina Chau, Lisa Congdon, Emily Hughes, Molly Idle, Juana Medina, Innosanto Nagara, Christopher Silas Neal, John Parra, Brian Pinkney, Greg Pizzoli, Sean Qualls, Dan Santat, Shadra Strickland, Melissa Sweet, and Raúl the Third, illustrate the words of civil rights leaders who inspired them and talk about why. Deeply inspirational.
Pre-K - Grade 3: A multicultural collection of young citizens, beautifully illustrated by Shawn Harris, band together to build a community and make their world a better place.
