Product Details


“A nuanced, inspiring research tool that will empower readers to utilize the power that young people have to create change and promote social justice.” —School Library Journal

“This book is right on time.  Some of these inspiring stories of nonviolent resistance will be familiar to young readers while others, including that of Irena Sendler, an unsung heroine of the Holocaust, will be a revelation.  Like acts of nonviolent resistance themselves, these stories are sometimes quiet, but always powerful.”—Nikki Grimes, Children’s Literature Legacy Medalist

“Stanley condenses history into bite-size pieces in this illustrated collection of one-page biographies accompanied by textural colored pencil and watercolor portraits. . . . the vibrant images and accessible style make this book attractive and easy to use.” —Publishers Weekly

“Brief and thoughtful, this informative introduction to change-makers gives inspiration to future activists.” —Kirkus Reviews
