What does it mean to speak up? This picture book follows a group of young children as they find ways to speak up in a variety of situations. Not only is this book timely, but I think it can help both children and adults find their voices to make a positive difference!
The back of the book features real kids who spoke up as well as some teaching points on when to speak up, when to stay quiet, and how to speak up without saying a word. These tips will come in handy as you share the book’s message at home or in the classroom.

I mean, it’s pretty much a toss up at this point. Our library does allow for holds and curbside pick-up, but I haven’t used that service yet. So until then, online book shopping it is!💰💰💰 ... See MoreSee Less
This makes me so happy! I guess I'll go grab some hot buttered toast while I wait.❤️
Kate DiCamilloI got a letter last week from a reader who wrote these words on the outside of her envelope: “I am a fan of pigs and I am a fan of you.”
The letter itself was about Mercy Watson, and how I should write more books about “that pig.”
Every time I think about the phrase “I am a fan of pigs and I am a fan of you” it makes me laugh out loud.
I’m a fan of pigs, too.
I’m also a fan of readers.
And I’m a fan of laughter.
So, will there be more stories about that pig?
Yes. ... See MoreSee Less
To be honest, this is something I have taken for granted in the past. But as I continue to grow and learn, I now understand just how important it is. That’s why I think we need to share the history of voting rights with kids. And when I can find a children’s book to help me, that’s an added bonus. That’s why I was so excited when my friend Michelle @mrsmcdonaldsclassroom shared this book.
Through rhyming text, Equality’s Call explains the history of voting rights in America in a way kids can understand. Throughout the book, a powerful message is repeated:
“A right isn’t right
Till it’s granted to all.”
The back of the book also includes information about voting-related amendments and legislation as well as voting rights activists. This would be a great book to share at home or with your students.
