If You're Going to a March

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Violet Kim. For the next generation of activists, this picture book is a how-to for kids going to their first protest march. Providing practical tips ("pack snacks and water") and straightforward details on what to expect (e.g., regarding speeches: "it's possible this part will get boring"), the easygoing text is paired with lively illustrations of smiling protestors. Freeman's afterword emphasizes that protesting is our right--"our responsibility, too."
