A Picture Book of Cesar Chavez

Illustrated by: Marie Olofsdotter
Age Level: 6-9

"The selfless struggles of labor leader Chavez are given a tempered and lucid treatment in this educational overview… The characters are drawn in an intentionally stiff style that fits with the depth-challenged folk art backgrounds, most of which are dominated by the color of sand. The text, meanwhile, is peppered with quotes from Chavez, all of which are backed up with source notes. An elegant introduction to a man who inspired thousands."
— Daniel Kraus, Booklist
