Description"If you're going to a march, you're going to want a sign"--and this inspiring handbook, which introduces children to the world of action and activism. As more and more children attend the growing number of marches across the country, this cheerful guide serves as a great reference tool and conversation starter for youthful participants. Inspired by author Martha Freeman's own experiences, this picture book addresses many of the questions kids might have: What should I wear? How will I get there? Where will I be able to go to the bathroom? Is it okay to dance? (Yes, it is!). All the while the text stays focused on the fact that the right to assemble is a Constitutional part of our life as Americans . . . whatever our political point of view.

"A bright, positive, and child-friendly description of how to participate in a protest and/or march. Freeman takes readers through the experience and offers practical advice for making signs, being comfortable for the long haul, striking up conversations, and finding one's own voice. This book can be read before, during, and after an important discussion about the hows and whys of civic engagement. The author includes an afterword that simply but potently describes our democracy and history of protests. VERDICT A befitting and timely addition that belongs in any collection, large or small." --School Library Journal online
