I really don't know why Litsy's ratings of this book are so low. It's a YA historical fiction about 14 year old Evelyn who fights alongside her abuela and the Young Lords to bring attention to the squalid living conditions imposed on Harlem's El Barrio in the late 1960s. The story contains universal themes like rebellion from parents and coming of age while also showing how racial inequality impacts childhood. Check it out!

Next up from this week's required reading: a story about young Latina girl living in Harlem who experiences a protest alongside her abuela. It's actually based on the author's own life.

Enjoyed reading about Dr. King though his son‘s eyes. The challenge & inspiration of MLK Jr ‘s message shines through. Recommend for grades K-2. Be prepared to discuss violence civil rights activists were forced to endure. #5stars #kidlit

I have used these books in my previous student teaching classroom with fourth graders when teaching them about non-fiction biography texts. The children loved these books and thought they were so cool. I'd love to use these again!

Biography series. Published 2014. This “I Am“ series is a great series of biographies for children about many famous, influential people from the past that have made an impact on today's world. I remember these books from when I was in grade school and I still see them in classrooms today. These are great for learning how to read biographies and teaching the structure of biographies!

My list of books I read in 2022. Quite a short one. 26 books in total. I'm still happy with what I read last year. Really enjoyed many of them! 😍

Malala: Activist for Girls Education by Raphaële Frier is a childrens book biography that was published in 2015. This book is a Mildred Batchelder Award Book winner. It is about a woman named Malala who stood up to the taliban at 15 years old and got shot. She wanted to fight for womens right for education and became such an amazing influence on other women. This would be a great book to read in any classroom and it has such a powerful message.

This nonfiction story is very touching as a young girl who is excited about attending a local school. Come to find out she and her siblings end up being turned away. They are told to enroll in a Mexican school instead, even though she is an American citizen who speaks fluent English. The girl's family is so upset by the school's response that they decide to file a lawsuit. Ultimately helping end school segregation laws in California in the 40s.
