Book Overview

I couldn't play on the same playground as the white kids.
I couldn't go to their schools.
I couldn't drink from their water fountains.
There were so many things I couldn't do.
In 1963 Birmingham, Alabama, thousands of African American children volunteered to march for their civil rights after hearing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speak. They protested the laws that kept black people separate from white people. Facing fear, hate, and danger, these children used their voices to change the world. Frank Morrison's emotive oil-on-canvas paintings bring this historical event to life, while Monica Clark-Robinson's moving and poetic words document this remarkable time.

   I have no problem with this story but beware of where it's called Standard Reading
This book is necessary reading for my 3rd child in the school. Their next assignment was to create their own test signs. The 3rd Grade! This book is used to a condition and groom our children for a life of protest and political activism. If that's what you feel is what your third grader should be learning, then it is on you. I disagree 100% ''. This book has caused much civil unrest in our particular school, and this indoctrination is used without question as a tool on your children. Don 't ignore it! And study where this path will lead before it is too late.

   Empowering
Even children who are too old for picture books will enjoy this. I read it with transfixed graders, and they were seventh! Every home, classroom and library needs more books on civil rights, and this is particularly powerful. The children in the book, not adults, are the ones who make the change.

I bought this for my ESL students to teach a unit on Civil Rights. The kids can connect completely to this book and put themselves in the characters'shoes. It is such an emotional story, the author shows how brave these children were. The art is fantastic and helps to show emotion and drama behind the lyrics.

This is a really important book and is appropriate for a wide range of readers. Both my five year old and my ten year old wanted to read it immediately after we finished reading it the first time. Frank Morrison's poetic words and Monica Clark-Robinson's captivating illustrations kept my kids glued to the 1963 Crusade of Birmingham, and after that we talked about racism, American history, bravery and courage, and how everyone -- even children -- can make a meaningful difference.

   Children are such powerful crusaders- read this important & beautiful book!
The significance of what these children have achieved deserves this powerful and relevant telling by Monica Clark-Robinson. “ Let the Children March ” empowers the wisest, kindest and most magical humans and calls them to action. This book is written and illustrated beautifully and teaches our children that their role is real, their voice is important and when there is work to be done, it is their work, too. Our 5 and 11 year old daughters read this story and re-read it. They are talking about this book with their friends.

   I'd never, never, never heard this story before ...
I have never heard this story before, ever. I had no idea how change agents were affecting children in Alabama during this crucial time in America's history. A moving read for children and adults... says this adult who bought several copies to begin gifting children in my life. I agree with the words of the author : This story is a change agent... '' The book is a servant only. Monica Clark-Robinson is an interview with Robinson.
