Description

On August 28, 1963, a remarkable event took place--more than 250,000 people gathered in our nation's capital to participate in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The march began at the Washington Monument and ended with a rally at the Lincoln Memorial, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his historic "I Have a Dream" speech, advocating racial harmony. Many words have been written about that day, but few so delicate and powerful as those presented here by award-winning author and illustrator Shane W. Evans. When combined with his simple yet compelling illustrations, the thrill of the day is brought to life for even the youngest reader to experience.

  • (5/5)
    good, simple backmatter.

    This book really say nothing, just draws and no more
  • (5/5)
    This is the second book I read by Shane W. Evans and I have to say, I loved it just as much as the first one I read! The author uses simple phrases but they pack powerful meanings. This gives the illustration a time to shine. The illustrations are full of details which adds on to the story. This book was about the March on Washington in 1963 from a family's perspective. They marched with thousands of people along side Martin Luther King Jr., fighting for equal rights.

    A family gets up early, walks to church for prayer, helps make picket signs, and boards the bus for Washington D.C., where they participate in the civil rights March on Washington. The text is simple ("The morning is quiet. The sun rises and we prepare to march.") and additional background must be first presented for children to appreciate the significance of the march. It does depict the march at a level young children can understand such as the preparations and seeing that people of all ages were involved.

    I really enjoyed this book because of its simple words, that teach a big lesson. The main idea of the story was to explain the situation of segregation and how people fought for their rights. The story was very brief, with only a few words on each page. The story was written in first person, “We came from all over…” The illustrations had a large impact on the story because they were very detailed and gave a different feeling to the reader. The story expressed how they felt through the words, and how the community stuck together. “We walk together,” or “ “We sing,” explained thoroughly how the African Americans did not leave eachother in the hard times. The characters weren’t described descriptively, nor much at all, but the illustrations showed more of them. I would definitely use this story in my classroom if my students were learning about segregation and Martin Luther King’s speech. This story would be read for children who are in elementary school, below third grade, with the simple words.

    A simple, subtle delivery of a powerful story.
  • (3/5)
    I think this one works better than Evans' previous work, "Underground," but I will say I read it to a group of third graders and asked what they thought and they mostly seemed confused. Perhaps they haven't covered the Civil Rights era quite yet.

    I really enjoyed this book and would definitely have this book in my classroom. It is a very simple read, meaning that there is about one sentence per page with great photos supporting it. Although the sentences are simple, they are powerful. On one page specifically the author writes, “We are hot and tired, but we are filled with hope.” The illustrations really caught my interest, as well. They were filled with emotion, including people of all races, and showed signs that really guided the reader’s understanding to what is going on. On one page, the illustration displays numerous people in a protest holding up signs stating things like, “Stop all Injustice,” “We shall overcome,” and “Freedom Road is Long!” The last thing that was very satisfying while reading this book was the last page. The author wrote a letter to the readers describing the events that took place during Martin Luther King’s protests and why we, as Americans, celebrate Martin Luther King Day. I thought this was a great touch. The main message of this book was civil rights and information on Martin Luther King Day.

    On August 28, 1963, over 250,000 people gathered in Washington, D.C. to participate in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The march began at the Washington Monument and ended with a rally at the Lincoln Memorial, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his historic “I Have a Dream” speech. Shane W. Evans, combining spare text with powerful images brings the day to life, as experienced by one family, for young readers. As his illustrations move from the family to the large crowd, even adults reading along with their children will get caught up in the excitement of the moment.
