The prose is moving, speckled with quotes that inspired the protesters and good detail. As a picture book ought to be, it is both easily understood and deep enough for older readers. 4.5 stars.

A poetic telling of the four young African Americans who wanted to be served at a Woolworth's lunch counter in N. Carolina in the 1960's. They just sat, and waited to be served, practicing nonviolence in the face of harassment. Great read aloud.

Following Dr. Martin Luther King's philosophy of peaceful protest, four friends stood up against segregation by sitting at a Woolworth's lunch counter where they were not served because they were black. This protest sparked sit-ins across the nation and ultimately contributed to the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This beautiful book presents the story in a kid-friendly way with bright illustrations that perfectly match the hopeful tone of the book. Highly recommended.
