    Simple but profound uotes reminding us to act; struggle to progress; vote; rise; bring light and love to darkness and hate; start at home; forge common bonds through business and harvesting; fix what is wrong; love and care for all humanity especially those who are different; be brave; diversify for strength and beauty; be free to believe; choose to protect your children’s rights as their guardian; work together; and look within to make the changeI was introduced to the broad spectrum of music and “freedom is no fear” of Singer Musician and Civil Rights Activist Nina SimoneOver a dozen illustrators each chose a uote providing their written and artistic interpretations of Maya Angelou Dr Martin Luther King WEB Du Bois Eleanor Roosevelt Helen Keller Khalil Gibran ueen Lili’uokalani John Lewis Sonia Sotomayor and Barack Obama This colorful and vividly drawn book inspires all ages to act and be the change Such a timely and important reminder to protect our civil rights Don’t let our democracy be trodden Stand up and be heard I highly recommend

    If the system is broken my inclination is to fix it rather than to fight it Sonia SotomayorAlone we can do so little; together we can do so much Helen KellerSo long as we have enough people in this country willing to fight for their rights we'll be called a democracy American Civil Liberties Union Founder Roger BaldwinSixteen children's picture book artists illustrate key uotes of inspiration from famous civil rights leaders of the past It's a beautiful and evocative book

    One of our weekly mantras is a uote of the week I model for my learners first few weeks and then they take the role over and share each Friday This will be an important addition for my uote basket Power of words connected with the illustrations will be a new anchor text for next school year

    We Are the Change Words of Inspiration from Civil Rights Leaders takes an innovative approach to introducing young readers to important figures in the fight for civil rights Sixteen award winning children’s book artists chose uotes from activists who fought for the rights of minorities women farm workers and others from the past and present This diverse group of activists included Helen Keller Maya Angelou Frederick Douglass Eleanor Roosevelt Dolores Huerta Khalil Gibran and The artists then let the uotes inspire an illustrationFor instance Molly Idle creator of Flora and the Flamingo and other books illustrated this uote from Eleanor Roosevelt “Where after all do universal human rights begin? In small places close to home—so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world” Her art shows a group of children roasting marshmallows over a campfireEmily Hughes who grew up in Hilo Hawaii illustrated this uote from ueen Lili’uokalani “You must remember never to cease to act because you fear you may fail” with an image of a child weaving a mat surrounded by lush tropical plantsAlong with the illustrations the artists also talk about what the uotes mean to them This integrative approach can inspire young readers to think about their own reactions to the words and images Biographies of the artists in the back along with the books they’ve written andor illustrated can lead to further readingThe publisher provided me with a copy of this title in exchange for my honest review

    “We Are the Change Words of Inspiration from Civil Rights Leaders” published by chroniclebooks belongs in every classroom and home To honor the work of the American Civil Liberties Union sixteen of the most amazing children’s books artists each created powerful and beautiful illustrations inspired by uotes of past and present civil rights leaders Each artist also wrote a short piece explaining why and how their chosen uote moved them This book will humble and inspire readers to follow in some small way the footsteps of these remarkable leaders to work to make the world a better place Here are a few examples of what you will find in this book The words of Helen Keller “Alone we can do so little together we can do so much” illustrated by Alina Chau; the words of Maya Angelou “In diversity there is beauty and strength” illustrated by Selina Alko and Sean uails; and the words of John Lewis “We may not have chosen the time but the time has chosen us” illustrated by Dan Santat This is just a small sampling To experience this amazing book for yourself look for it on bookshelves on May 7 2019 Thanks to chroniclebooks for sharing a review copy with #kidlitexchange andthanks to the kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book – all opinions are my own

    Sometimes all someone needs to keep up the good fight is an encouraging word of two In this slim volume readers will find uotes from various civil rights activists Sixteen different artists lend their talents to the book having chosen uotes that were meaningful to them and them illustrating them in their own uniue fashion as well as providing a brief blurb about each one Thus there are 16 uotes that might make readers and young social activists think twice before giving up Readers will find words of wisdom and encouragement here from John Lewis Maya Angelou Eleanor Roosevelt and Khalil Gibran among others Artists who contributed to the book include Dan Santat Molly Idle Melissa Sweet Brian Pinkney and Shadra Strickland among a stellar cast And yes we are the change and if we hope for anything in this world to change we must be the ones who work toward it Readers can finish the book uickly but it will not leave their minds so fast lingering and reminding them to take action that sometimes feels uncomfortable but is necessary as they try to right the wrongs in this world Teachers might want to have this one on their shelves as a reference and reminder of why they do the necessary work they do

    This is a great collection of empowering uotes and a wonderful sampling of many different illustrators' artwork I'm really glad we took the time to read this one This very book you are holding will be assessed with a certain political view of its intentions some may love it others may detest it but no matter how you choose to exist in this nation there is no right or wrong answer but the freedom to be vocal with your vote Dan Santat p 10If there is no struggle there is no progress Frederick Douglass as uoted by Lisa Congdon p 6People have a right to different opinions but those differences should not turn into hatred We should love and care for each other because we are all one human race Dolores Huerta as uoted by Raul the Third p 25In diversity there is beauty and there is strength Maya Angelo as uoted by Selina Alko p 30Alone we can do so little together we can do so much Helen Keller as uoted by Alina Chau p 42

    One note; the EPUB version I read did no favors to the formatting which influenced the overall scoreThis is a brief middle school targeted collection of uotes and related artworkThe uotes are for the most part inspiring and some of the artwork is beautiful but overall I was left underwhelmed The notes from the illustrators explaining why they chose the uotes they did were scattered in uality and it would have been nice if there had been a brief biography of the people who said the uotes; some of the illustrators covered it in their notes but others didn't This is definitely aimed at younger readers and I can see it serving as a good springboard for them to explore the illustrators' other works or find out about the uoted individuals But there are other books that do similar things better than this one
