soar“Rosa sat so Martin could march.  Martin marched so Barack could run.  Barack ran so our children can soar!”  An inspiring celebration of African American history and the power of individual lives to make a difference—this beautifully illustrated book puts the pieces together into a single story that is thrilling.  Westchester artist Eric Velasquez did the spread on Obama, capturing the excitement and the promise of his campaign.

Nonfiction/Picture Book, highly recommended- Judith (WLS)
