Harvesting Hope: The story of Cesar Chavez
By Kathleen Krul, illustrated by Yuyi Morales
This is a carefully written and beautifully illustrated story of the life of United Farm Workers leader Cesar Chavez, aimed at children 6 to 9. The lush pictures and thoughtful text make it easy and fun for young readers to learn about this American hero -- his own struggles as a child, his courage and determination as a young man and adult as he fought to help migrant farmworkers win better lives. From Cesarís life as a shy, soft-spoken, often-teased boy to his quiet strength as a champion of workersí rights, this is a story well told. 48 pages hardcover
