I couldn't play on the same playground as the white kids.&nbsp
I couldn't go to their schools.&nbsp&nbsp
I couldn't drink from their water fountains.&nbsp&nbsp
There were so many things I couldn't do. &nbsp

Editorial Reviews

? A powerful retrospective glimpse at a key event." -Kirkus, starred review ? "Much of the text will provoke questions and important conversations between children and adult readers. The experiences of segregation are sensitively depicted? A highly readable historical account which deserves a place on picture book and nonfiction shelves alike.- School Library Journal, starred review "This remarkable story remains relevant today as young readers think about their roles in the ongoing struggle for justice. Teachers who use this book might scaffold it with additional resources that teach about the intensive planning and organization that went into this and other activist campaigns." - Booklist " The art throughout is a vibrant representation of the determination and courage of the civil rights movement. A nuanced account that could inspire the youngest readers to make a big difference." - Horn Book " Clark-Robinson's stirring debut unfolds through the resolute voice of a (fictional) African-American girl participating in the 1963 Children's Crusade? The narrator's conclusion, "Our march made the difference," serves as a powerful reminder for today's readers about their own ability to fight for justice and equality." - Publisher's Weekly "The text is taut and clear, making its greatest impact through its simple, even understated, specifics." - BCCB "
