This is a great HF book to use in the classroom when teaching students about the Civil Rights Movement and segregation. This book narrates his accomplishments and why we celebrate his birthday as a national holiday. #ucflae3414su19 .

This HF highlights the effects of the Jim Crow laws throughout the Civil Rights Movement through the eyes of a 4-year-old girl, along with the strengthened African American community persistently fighting for their rights. This book would be great for SR to have group discussion about the similarities of this time in history to current events as well as teaching how the power of community can truly make changes in our society!

UDL 7.2 will optimize the relevance, value and authenticity of what the community of social activists truly entailed. ESOL strategy 32 can allow student pairs to optimize comprehension in SR and the activity. #ucflae3414su19

I feel like this would really speak to children because trying on shoes is something so normal to children.

I truly enjoyed and that this book was focused on two young girls in the South during the Civil Rights era because not only does it show a civil right movement but also shows feminism as two young girls find a way to obtain what they need. I like the simplistic message of Ella Mae wanting to try on shoes because it takes something realistic and elevates it to a story of racism. This will interest and inspire anybody who reads it.

Rating 4/5

The illustrations are so wonderful and really have a rustic feel to them. Lots of older patterns and textures that you can almost feel.

Such a great book that tells the story for Booker T Washington. I especially love this book because it highlights extremely important details of his life.
