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

A Picture Book of John and Abigail Adams

Illustrated by: Ronald Himler
Age Level: 6-9

When John and Abigail first met, they didn't really like each other but came to appreciate the other's strengths: Abigail had her own opinions; John was honest and witty. After their marriage, Abigail expertly handled home, family, and more during her husband's frequent travel and was the earliest First Lady to live in the Executive Mansion. This is a graceful introduction to an early first family.
